Not sure on full contracts but hearing Rory Parata and Greg o Shea could be in the academy next season.

Saw this on twitter that Munster are trying to sell some land at Musgrave to help fund the redevelopment of the ground. Will be interesting if they actually do get to sell it

but that includes a development of temporary stands. This would be permanent.

Ah gotcha. Wonder would it lead to more Rabos being played in Cork? Probably not yeah?

I doubt to be honest. Anyway Munster are locked in to a certain number of games in thomond for the next while by the 10 year season tickets they sold during redevelopment so I doubt Cork can get many extra games.

Poor Stander has had such a tough season of rugby that they're letting him rest through the H Cup obviously!

Something is definitely amiss here. What's going on?

Munster could only add 3 players - with Earls out Munster needed a centre. And with Strings in Bath, needed another scrumhalf. Third position has to go to front row.

Stander wasn't needed as Munster have loads of backrows and Tommy O'Donnell has been a revelation this year.

Coughlan was delisted when he got injured, but got fit quicker than expected so had to be relisted and so took a possible spot in January.

Think its just a lot of young guys all competing for a few places and Stander arrived late in the day and then got injured.

The other note from the additions is that Bath have added Strings to their Amlin Squad. Good for him but bloody frustrating to think we played Williams over him for a lot of the season.

And how do you think Stander feels about this?

The last thing they want is him getting fed up and becoming a Sykes.

Very strange re Stander. Don't buy that he just didn't make the squad because we needed a centre etc. Must be some story behing this.
