Which I found surprising.


well he was certainly very very good tonight.

Of the Leinster Ireland u20 starters

3. Tom Clarkson(Blackrock/DUFC), was excellent, played the whole game at 3, at 18 years old.
4. Charlie Ryan(Blackrock/UCD), was very good, looked much more athletic that last season. Captain after Hawkshaw went off.
6. Martin Moloney(Athy RFC/Old Belvedere), strong 1st half, quieter in the second, was a strong breakdown threat.
7. Scott Penny(St. Michaels/UCD), excellent all round game, tackle machine.
10. Harry Byrne(St. Michaels/Lansdowne), bar one kick, he was excellent.
12. David Hawkshaw(Belvedere/Clontarf), poor pass at the start to give away a try, other than that pretty good.
13. Liam Turner(Blackrock/DUFC), very good, looked very much up to it physically at 13.

Subs
16. John McKee(Campbell/Old Belvedere) - got 10 mins, scrum improved when he came on.
17. Michael Milne(Roscrea/UCD) - struggled with the scrum at the start but adapted well, carried a lot once he came on.
19. Brian Deeny(Wexford RFC/Clontarf) - wasn't on long enough.
21. Cormac Foley(St. Gerards/St. Marys) - wasn't on long, but did very well to score his try to win the game.
23. Rob Russell(St. Michaels/DUFC) - wasn't on long enough.

If the Irish 20's continue with their current form, none of those new entrants are unrealistic.

I wonder is Hawkshaw still considered an out half. Looks like he’s made the switch to 12 at both A and u20s level.

He is a 10/12, even this season he has played more 10 than 12 when you look at AIL appearances etc.

Where he settles long term is to be determined.
