Who took it from RIL.....
So it's 100% made up
Daily mail saying kruis doesn't want to move to another English club
He is IQ and family is from Limerick
Son of former All Black John Gallagher I believe. No idea if he's good or not, presumably it's squad depth.
Is more depth but to compete for a spot.
Yes the son of John. A good pedigree and we lack 15s. Shane Daly is playing there but is not a 15. More a winger or 13. But Gallagher is not a bad player and will be a good addition
Also Sammy Arnold linked with Connacht and I'd expect us to hold Billy Holland for another year and Darren O Shea will leave.
On the munster thread I posted up contracts ending. I'd say there'll be around 8 leavers. Possibly Bleyendaal too if he has to retire.
DOS has been a big disappointment. Physically imposing but kitten soft.
Tyler's is a totally different issue. Has more to do with insurance and our duty to look after a player injured on our watch.
Roman Salanoa from Leinster to Connacht.
Connacht need established players to push their starters. Salanoa is more of a developmental prospect.
Rumours that Sam Costelow has been offered a contract at the Scarlets to leave Leicester.
Salanoa is nowhere near the level needed to play most weeks, he's not what Connacht need right now at all. He needs to be managed, the potential is obvious there but to say he's raw is an understatement and a half. Just throwing him in at Connacht isn't in anyone's interest.
Definitely, Roman would benefit more sticking at Belvo (or going to a 1A club) than going west. Goes back to Connacht (Galway) needing a D1 club though, he would be needed more out there but not enough to justify it without decent level rugby every week.
