Jordan Duggan isn't still in school.

But yeah that is interesting, all Ireland u20 games this weekend might be the reason?

Good point: Trinity Vs Garryown(H), UCD vs Cork Con(A), Landowne must have an u20 playoff game as well, not sure who against. There would be a lot of u19 sub academy guys either involved with the AIL teams or playing in those games.
There is supposed to be an u19 trip to France next month I hear......do you know anything about that?

I see Kieran Campbell is coaching the team. Not sure upon what basis that was decided, the Ulster Academy is probably the least productive in Ireland!

Ye're welcome!

Some very good tries scored there. Think any more of the u19s will make the squad for the U20 world championship?

Most of that squad is still in school so not eligible.

True.

The scrum half position should be competitive next year especially with Stewart being eligible again.

Most competitve ever possibly.

I wonder will they leave Stewart with Ulster, to give the other 9's more exposure to gametime..

I would be in favour of that so as many players as possible get experience with the U20s. As long as there isn't a drop off in ability.

I'd rate Hughie over Stewart anyway.

Not sure about the rest.
