Glasgow v Leinster writeup

The Academy out-half/centre was introduced for Jimmy O’Brien in the 71st minute of the 32-19 win at Scotstoun Stadium.

Ryan Corry -

"I just want to go out there and play the game because you never know, it might be the end of rugby at the end of this year and no one will ever get a contract again."

Gerry Thornley - Irish Times
(possibly behind paywall)

Scrum-half Kieran Marmion and out-half Jack Carty have been unused by Ireland over the past fortnight, as has second row Quinn Roux

Murray Kinsella -

There had been speculation the world champions might have looked to eventually join the Six Nations, but any plans for that look to be at an end

Italy have long been without a talismanic, or at least consistent, fly-half.
