All the year 3s + Frawley and O'Sullivan. Penny probably given SOB leaving but maybe not with Connors.

With 2 deep in each halfback position the academy front runners are effectively full squad anyway so should be promoted.

I like your right leg. A lovely leg for the role.
I've got nothing against your right leg.
The trouble is ... neither have you

I wouldn't be 100% confident on Kelly/Keenan, given their involvement with the 7's team at the moment.

Based on this years under 20s 6N, this crop of players seems to be exceptionally talented. I know that's easy to say about players on a winning team but Clarkson, Ryan, Moloney and Turner especially all are at an incredible standard at the moment and physically impressive and all look like they're well able to push on

Based On his Leinster caps Id have no questions over Keenan being given a year. 7s distraction is worth extra time if it wasnt just farming out someone who was already definitely getting cut.

Kelly is still young. He came through faster which is a reason to give him another shot if he's making progress. We'll know more in a year.

I tend to agree especially given its a World cup season, but given both will spent rest of the season playing 7's who knows what they will do next season.

The demise of the B&I Cup gives these guys more time to do 7s.
