Celtic cup kicks off 24th August and runs til the 12th October - then maybe semi final and final and then cover for the world cup and pro14 games with an InterPro game over xmas. Alot of these lads wont see AIL til 2020

Blocks of 3 games kicking off 5th October with the 9th game on 14th December, game 10 is 11th January then.

Deasy retried, Tom Hayes an O Donovan sacked by Shannon, with geoff moylan and tadgh Bennett in.
Sean skehan DOR in Terenure.

any word on UCD?

He stated on this podcast few weeks ago that he was done: Its on his twitter profile from few weeks ago

Re Shannon coaches - all seemed pretty mad- Hayes and o'Donovan went to USA with them in May, then came back and were sacked. there now on hunt for forwards coach.

Conall Doherty and Paul Kiernan signed to Lansdowne from UCD.
Jack Stafford - Shannon to Garryowen
Billy Scannell to UCC

Rumoured the US Major league clubs chasing top AIL talent - Will Leonard, mark o keeffe, Kindregan, McNulty etc all worked out well.

Exeter - whispers. Maybe a bit mad to say sacked - my bad. But he went to US as head coach then when he returned they brought in new DOR and head coach and now on hunt for forwards coach without him knowing. So maybe you choose what this best describes this.

Yeah maybe - I honestly dont think Shannon would have done better. They do go through some amount of head coaches.

Ya fair point. Felt Hayes did a good job, took over from Marcus Horan an won 1B with them, everyone suspected them to be relegated from 1A and were flying it up until xmas, joint 5th, and beat UCD back to back then lost rest of games. Will Leonard moving to US, Casey an Flannery excelling with Ireland 20s also, Lee Nicholas injured - all didnt help them second half of season.

Would be better for the clubs involved

Not long term though. Yes having players playing 1A is important but getting clubs within the province to higher level is also vital and academy players involved with the clubs in 2A/2B will help that hugely

They need A games. If they dont miss others other than 20s call ups then is that too much of an issue?

Any thoughts on tipp clubs or do you have any involvement in any tipp club?
Will have some complaints but provinces need A games as well. If all known now then clubs shouldnt have too many complaints.
