    That's a very strong side. Good to see such strong sides being put out this early in the season. I wonder will they keep releasing players in line with this.

    They usually do.

    All of irish 20s to come back in as well as they are not released back yet from academies which is a strange decision

    Malahide RFC's facebook page has just confirmed that Mike Ross is making his debut in their game vs Bective this Friday night.

    I wonder what Mr Ross is getting out of this arrangement...

    Tend to agree. Reckon we will push Con close but as tough a game as you could ask for to start. If GO have signed as well as people are saying they could win in Templeville.

    He is also going to be scrum coach for Malahide RFC. If he is getting any dosh then its for the coaching not playing.

    Hahaha... I have no issue with him being paid but to suggest it's not for playing as well as coaching is absurd.

    Well of course but that's all the IRFU need to hear.

    Absolutely, am I right in saying there is a limit on what you can spend on coaches?

    He's getting 500 quid a game apparently

    Heard it off a very reliable source who was getting 400-500 quid a game last season with Malahide (ex Skerries & ex tarf man)

    watched some of it on Facebook as malahide streamed the game. Certainly didn't look like it was malahide first game in AIL

    Were the scrums as one sided as youd expect? As they say forwards win you matches, backs decide by how much (thats what they told us forwards anyway :) )

    Wasn't at the game but apparently Bective were forced to go to uncontested scrums. Conal Keane, Tom Collis, David Nolan also playing for Malahide
