Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Connacht have to think. Do they need a short term fix or develop one of their own/sign a surplus player from Munster that can give them a good number of seasons. As I said earlier signing a new coach is paramount. Would McCarthy have stayed if Elwood was there next year or had a new coach been anno...
