    Cronin is fit? That would be great news!

    That must be pretty close to the full strength team?

    In terms of "full strength" it's really just the two flankers who wouldn't be seen as first choice I guess, but they're both decorated internationals and neither are really a noticeable step down, other than questions over SOB's form as of late. First choice would be Ruddock at 6 and VdF/Leavy at 7 or something similar.

    Same team as Toulouse, hard to argue against that.

    Semi final tickets now on public sale via Ticketmaster.

    KO moved from 3pm to 2.30pm too...

    Ruddock being fit is a huge boost. Need that physicality and intelligence.

    Minimising TV overlap with last day of the Premier League I suppose

    The last day of the premier league is actually this Sunday.

    The FA Cup final is on the 18th May at 5pm.

    Someone will attempt to though...

    Ah, I knew there was some soccer-related thing happening, it was the same last year IIRC.

    I managed to pick up tickets in block C in the Anglesea Stand this morning so happy with that - surprised there were that good seats left I was expecting to be in the north/south stand if i got any tickets.

    Leicester are the only ones in 02 and 03 AFAIK.

    Interview with Rob Kearney on Virgin Medias programme has him a bit coy about his future and reflecting on it possibly being his last game for Leinster.

    Wonder if it will be!

    He is gone based on all the comments I have heard....now just pub talk and a few bits on podcasts but it looks like he wont stick around


    Leinster probably need to move on as well with a new FB

    It'll be a Larmour, Lowe and Byrne back 3 going forward I imagine.

    I guess you mean Larmour at 15? Lancaster view is Larmour is the next 15....

    I think Tomane might have more prominant role next season on wing

    Larmour at full back.

    Possibly more of Tomane on the wing. It'll be rare to see those back 3 playing many Pro14 games so there will be plenty of games to go around. Kelleher needs to get minutes too.

    McFadden and Dave Kearney will probably be gone I imagine. It doesn't look like Jack Kelly is getting a senior contract.

    Rob Kearney was pretty good in November, he was terrific last year against Saracens in the game I like to call "Rob Kearney makes Owen Farrell's kicking game look predictable". He would be a huge loss to Leinster, he is incredible underrated.

    I don't think he is underrated but people have short memories.

    He was really, really struggling for fitness at the start of 2019. It took him ages to get back. That's only going to get worse as he's older.

    I am a massive massive fan of Rob, he is an incredible player but Leinster need to transition a few players post WC, Rob and Seanie I think will be gone

    McFadden and D Kearney will stay I hope, D Kearney is only 29 with very little miles on clock so could play next 4 years at least
