Well that's a surprisingly strong team considering our previous selections for the B&I cup. Looks like we've decided to win the thing

Yep maybe do, mind you I wonder if it would have been anything like this team if it was away this weekend. What we do know is Leinster A will be very handy.

it may be a strong team but I wouldn't say any of that team are nailed on first team starters other than Leiua at 13.

Just demonstrates the fantastic competition we have across the squad and that the B&I cup gives us a great opportunity to keep the squad fresh in terms of selection and fitness.

I may be wrong but I believe that this is Giorgi Nemsadze's first 1st Team start after 1 1/2 years at the club

You may be right but it will become his ninth appearance. As seven of the other eight were in the Challenge Cup and then Anglo Welsh Cup there's a fair chance at least one of them was a start. I can't be bothered to check any more closely than that.

Still, not been really given a chance considering he's a current international in a team who's strength is in the forwards. He must have something

As an ex 2nd row I’m probably biased but every successful team needs an enforcer type 2nd row. I’d have thought he fits the bill, hence I’m also surprised at the lack of game time he’s had since he signed.
