Very Disappointing, I know we had a young team out but it was men against boys.

Andrew Deegan needs to step up his game also...

The problem seemed to me like weak tackling and an inability to stop the offload from the whole team, not sure I see much to single Deegan out on.

Perhaps I am a bit harsh on Deegan (apart from the first try) but the guy hasn't really delivered yet.I am hoping he gets on better with the harder ground and the better weather coming in spring.

Anyone know where Conway and Harly Fox are? Are they injured?

Didn't seem to lack anything in size, but a couple of lads were blowing hard very early on. That's the thing playing teams that play on 4g pitches, they're used to fast tempo games right from the off and I believe have a distinct advantage on their home turf, or if they play away on a firm pitch.

Ben Betts leaving Leicester and open to a move back to Ireland. I wonder is he on Connachts radar and would he add to the squad. I know very little about him bar alo of discontent in Munster when he went to Leicester.

Eagles playing Tonight in Corinthian park. 7 pm KO

No teams announced, and 2 hours notice on Twitter very bizarre

I saw the fixture up on BBC website before I went to Rabbitt's for the Pau game, so I thought I'd drop in to the Sportsground instead, but the lights were all off as I went past, so I assumed it was an error. All a bit bizarre alright. No mention on the website all week. They lost 27-3.

Anyone know what sort of size Sean Masterson is in comparison to his brother? Not sure if it's just because he's pictured with a load of backs in today's press release for the u20s but he looks like a very big lad.

According to Irish Rugby profile he's 6'3" and about 15st...

Yeah cheers though I usually take the online height & weight stats with about 6 tonnes of salt, that goes quadruple for young fellas who aren't finished growing, was curious if anyone had any first hand chance to weigh him up.

That size sounds about right, he's a fine player a bit more athletic than Eoghan but with less nous, I was hoping he'd develop into more of a 7 but he probably doesn't have the instinct for it yet.

Is there any word on who is going to be signed at 8 if it's true at all ?

Is the word on the street that we’ve signed someone?
