agree there, everyone thought they'd be the whipping boys of the irish teams

season should be interesting, coupled with the fact that the world cup players are back i think it'll be a totally different league

Still feel sorry for connacht though. dont fully understand the bbc article, dunno if it's lack of coffe but it says: they CAN qualify if they did manage to finish as the highest-ranked Irish team in the Celtic League, as there is a play of bewteen HIGHEST PLACED NON-QUALIFIER and the third-ranked Italian side.  Why do they have to come top of the irish sides?
