Well we are going to disagree then. I'll leave it at that.


That's totally fine.

If you think about it though. A player now would have to go 3 years in the academy and THEN still have 2 years left as an NIQ.

Making it unlikely that we would recruit directly to the academy.

We will probably go younger or not bother. As it is this lad has 2 years in sub academy so is 3 years older than the new recruits

4. Jonathan Fish(Michaels)
5. Cathal Purcell(Dundalk)

8. Jack Coolican(Gonzaga)
9. Rob Gilsenan(Michaels)
10. Niall Carroll(Michaels)
11. Matt Grogan(|Belvedere)
12. Simon O'Kelly(Michaels)
13. Marcus Kiely(Newbridge)
14. Matthew McGetrick(Terenure)

Their 20's will cost more than the famous Lansdowne team of a few years ago, allegedly!

under-17 blitz yesterday in donnybrook involving schools and club sides.

3 school sides plus midlands combined, north metro and south east shane horgan sides.

I believe a club side won the blitz.

Very unusual starting 15, very different to last years u18s schools team which in my opinion is a stronger team, a lot of talented players missing. Interesting to see Chris Cosgrave on the wing and Tim Corkery starting out half.

It's 4/23

Josh O'Connor and Mark Boyle notable absentees.
Appears O'Connor is playing 7's

It's a very strong group though.

Corkery at 10 is a surprise.

Well I’d have Edward Kelly starting fullback, Justin Leonard at 10 and then if injury free I’d have Lee Barron starting hooker and Matt Grogan on the wing. If Rob Gilsenan wasn’t injured you could arguably have him starting scrum half, Just my opinion to be honest. Still not a bad team playing this weekend . Would also have Mark Boyle starting 6

Success Edogun Is an absolute beast. He really is a player to look out for and hopefully he can make a career out of rugby. He’s a top top athlete I remember watching him against St Michael’s in the first round of cup and he was Kilkennys best player and he'd start on any schools team on Leinster he’s that good . Very talented player and good luck to him. Absolute beast
