Hard to say who'll make the breakthrough. Every year now there are a few talents like Stockdale and Larmour coming through. If we can get one or two of those standout youngsters per season and two or three 'slower to mature' players like Tadhg Beirne.


Some stand out players I think can get capped or become a big part of the squad are James French (loosehead prop), Ronan Kelleher, Hugh O'Sullivan, Michael Lowry (though size is always a concern), Doris, Gavin Coombes, Bill Johnston, Jack Dunne.


There are a few seasons of the U20 to watch out for also. 4 years ago many of the current squad were school boys with potential.


Looking at the current squad it's noticeable how many players are in their early twenties.

Even if she has 4 years to bulk up I really wouldn't throw her in against the All Blacks.

+1.

Kelleher, Coombes, Penney and Curtis all look likely to be good enough. But then they have to enter the "lucky draw". Who gets injured, loses form or produces on a big day?
