Given the quality of coaching, as evidenced in the relatively limited Pro14 game-time of the young guys, I am certainly happy with the quality available in that list.

Of the newbees, I have been seriously impressed with Conor O'Brien and almost as impressed with Jimmy O'Brien. I've always been a fan of Tommy O'Brien, since his under-age exploits, and have been delighted that he been given a real decent recovery period by the Academy Management since the JWC in 2018.

Three O'Briens aged 23, 22 and 21, coupled with Ringrose at 24 and Henshaw at 26 looks like a pretty good hand. If Frawley (21) adapts to No. 12, we will have a seriously good mid-field selection - but will find it hard to hold onto them.

have to take in the opposition, but Conor O'Brien's progress is really encouraging, seems to always break the first tackle and gets hands free..

The last two Pro14 conference games of the season are Glasgow and Ulster who will both be desperate for points I imagine so we hopefully he is involved in those games and we can have see how good he is. I expect he’ll go well, some player
