Prop Cian Healy is expected to miss the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle on Wednesday.
He will, of course, join another Exile out there - Lions' Doctor Gary O'Driscoll. We trust their relationship will be purely social!
We also hope that Simon may emulate the achievements of fellow Exile Rob Henderson, who went from being an unheralded player (by some pundits), at the start of the last Lions' tour to Australia, to become one of the fixtures' on the Test XV.
