Good to see so many getting a game. Tough ask but I bet they give it some.
Seen a bit of davey and bullough and they look decent players. Hopefully this will give the coaches the confidence they can cope with the championship too.

Pleased that Buckle & Watkins are making the trip - both great lads who are always welcome in St Ouen. Let's hope for a fine night and a well matched game with no injuries.

Don't kick it pick it up and GO FORWARD

Slightly ironic that, in a season when we all know who is going to win promotion out of the Championship, the B&I Cup for once could have provided a genuine competitive competition. However, the high injury toll experienced by many clubs at various levels so far this season means that it merely represents the breathing space between the first and second quarters of the season.

Add to this the ongoing problem of combining a competitive and franchise system in one competition. Experience shows that Irish teams can muster fantastic resources if required.

That's because rugby union in Ireland (North & South) is extremely popular and the talent is available to the various district sides as required.
Second and third string rugby is of a very high standard, so the 'step up' if and when called isn't too onerous.

When did we last have Irish opposition....if at all?

I recall Scots & Welsh, but am struggling to recall any Irish side meeting us in the B&I.

Two years ago Carnegie played Munster A where Shinfield made his debut on a very wet and windy Friday night in Kinsale.

We lost in the final to Leinster "A" at Donnybrook, Dublin, a few years back and I remember another match whereby the Irish province (I think Munster) played their first team Heineken Cup match in the afternoon and the unused subs turned out against us in the evening.
