Cronins fitness is brilliant news. Interesting that McGrath is the sub prop. Delighted Lowe made it. X-factor needed badly

Sarries gone for Itoje at 6 and Skelton in the row with Kruis.

Leinster should be looking at targeting that lineout hard with Fardy Ryan and Dev in there

Forget the lineout, that backrow can easily be disrupted at the breakdown

He’s also very polished for a young lad, he did some media during the week and said all the right things without actually saying much.

Leinster have been in transition the last couple of years. A few retirements and some guys moving on. It's amazing the team has been as good as it has.
Rob K is at the stage where he will move on or have to re sign at a lower rate. His age profile works against him and Larmour has been good this season.
It's likely a similar scenario as SOB. With VDF and Leavy being as good as they are and not to mention Penny and Connors, it's unsurprising that SOB was not retained.
I have no idea what will happen with Ferg. I imagine he's going to try to go elsewhere as the influx of wingers coming up and his age makes him expendable.
I hope DK is retained. He's a good player with great experience. I predict Adam B will be in the drivers seat for the 14 jersey and Kelleher will be the back up.
Leinster are producing quality players and the academy lads look fantastic prospects. I think Tommy O Brien will be barging through the door in a couple of years, creating more headaches for Leo.
I think of the lads who have left in recent years and the guys who have come in. The team is still very good and look to be a consistent contender for silverware.

Bought my seats in the Anglesea for the Munster match and then a third ticket through the ST holder pre-sale. The third ticket has arrived, but no sign of the 2 that I bought a couple of days before. Anyone received their Season Ticket seat tickets yet?

He’s fit. Leo said they didn’t want to risk him especially with the injury he got and lack of game time recently.

Bent’s a little more stout hence got the nod. Especially as Leinster expect Saracens, with all their SA ex-pats, to show a real lager mentality.
