High number of very young backrowers in the senior squad: Josh Murphy [23], Will Connors [22], Max Deegan [21], Caelan Doris [20]. Connors, Deegan and Doris all promoted early.

Yeah, that's true. I guess it jumps out at you that there's only one academy backrow, but you're right.

Nothing new there.. expect 3rd and 2nd years to be given every chance to step up, although some 2nd years may be absent to jWC

Last year would have seen a bigger contingent due to Lions. This time around there are key players who weren't touring so a fair few positions have experience. Outhalf being the outlier.

I can see Kelleher too.

David Hawkshaw is the most notable absentee from the academy IMO.

rumour that John McKee(Ulster & Ireland Schools captain) is training with Leinster 20's this summer, along with Ireland and Munster u19 flanker Mark Fleming... both planning on studying in dublin next season.
