Cillian Gallagher in A team tomorrow. Mitchell starting with McKeon on bench so Marmion obviously in 23 this weekend. Tom McCartney making his comeback also for A team.
Could see sob and Colby come into the 23 for gallagher and Eoin Mckeon?

I'd say SOB on the bench and Copeland starts at 8.

TOH may be carrying a knock so with Leader playing for the Eagles, it's going to be Kelleher at FB. If Bundee is allowed back, I can see Farrell as the replacement utility back.

Conan O'Donnell should see some action on Saturday as well.

Possibly, although Boyle primarily played 8 in the AIL for Buccs last year. Butler also has experience there in Super Rugby although I can't recall him packing down at 8 for us. Much prefer SOB at 6.

Copeland not available according to Indo earlier this week. Don’t think Bundee will
play but be good to see O’Donnell.

Yeah he looked excellent for Ireland u20s en route to RWC semi final, doesn’t seem to have kicked on, yet at least.

It's strange to bring a high level prospect into the academy after a strong u20 season and have him play two years of AIL 2A and barely feature for even the Eagles. I'm sure there are reasons but it's unusual from the outside looking in. Can't expect a young lad to develop like that.

Delighted to see Conan on the bench. I wonder is Ultan being rested? Thought he was excellent against Glasgow.

They are not very forthcoming with injury updates this season so far but I safely assume in relation to Ultan and Tom it is squad rotation over injury given the performances of both last weekend.
