    Back on topic....JJ is special!!

    I remember him coming on against Esher in an A game in Dooradoyle near the start of last season (his fellow sub half back that day was one C Murray) and he left the entire opposition team, his own team, the ref and his officials, and everyone in attendance, for dead with an absolutely immaculate sidestep!! his break for the 6-3 penalty today was outrageous stuff

    I really hope that JJ makes the 10 shirt his own. Jackson not being released by Ulster may be the silver lining he needed

    Got to say I had a bank holiday smile all night after that performance.

    looking forward to wtaching JJ play for the seniors next season. You've got to think he will get a chance in some match at least.

    Penney won't be able to ignore him when he leads us to a World Cup win, single-handedly beating the Baby Blacks in the final

    We have some good young backrowers floating about while there aren't really any good young locks putting their hands up. Our need is greatest at lock, the guy is a brute and I think he could turn into a top class workhorse lock from the look of him.

    Hanrahan looked better than anything Jackson turned in at ten for the U20's this season too, quality performance and a player worth getting excited about. There's a well above average crop this season.

    I'm hopeful of a reinvented Nagle next season.. injury free fingers crossed. He will not disappear overnight,
    and is still a real prospect, let's not forget.

    League performances only, i think Dave Foley has been far better than Nagle.

    POC and Albacete, but on his position, you don't put a guy with that athleticism and size at 6 if you can get him in the second row.

    He is going to be top class lock for Ulster and Ireland for a long time.

    POC good as he is was never that good on the ground. To me its a waste to have a guy like Henderson with his hands trucking the ball up the middle. With tuhy, donncha ryan, foley and maybe Toner i think we're fine in the second row. Trying to replace world class talents like ferris at 6 long term will be a huge problem IMO.

    Ireland beating SA really has opened the group wide open.Even if England beat us ,they still have to beat the boks,it's going to be a very interesting group.

    He does remind me of ferris. Maybe what should swing this debate
    is his tackling game?
    I would like to see a meat eating tackler in the irish backrow
    again. Only fleetingly have we seen anything that can
    put hits in like mick fitzgibbon.. muldoon springs to mind.
    Maybe you don't get that so much from a taller player,
    and I'd fancy seeing this more in a seven than a six at any rate.

    Ireland = wolfhounds..??
    SA = Baby Boks..??
    NZ = Baby Blacks..?? sounds a bit odd....

    anyone know the real names of these teamns, or are they just "Insert Country Here" U20´s.........
    He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

    On Th side yes they have Ross hagan Moore( think Moore is TH Hugo?) and furlong ...rest are LH.

    If hagan makes it..maybe we would get moore or Furlong.
    There is also Bent who is a tighthead coming in next season also....

    Wolfhounds are the Ireland A team.

    SA informally call their 7s team the Blitz Boks. Which is just superb.

    Great result and performance last night. It wasn't a poxy plucky performance either, we had some real top quality performers and outplayed the boks in most facets of the game. Unlike some previous U20 sides, i thought we had a superb skill level, and there wasn't much evidence of senior cup superstars who couldn't translate to being good team performers which has dogged previous underage sides. I don't think they should be fearing anyone after that result.

    Personally, it's disappointing to see so little Munster involvement (disappointed Buckley's not even in the match day squad) but that's tempered by seeing what a prospect JJ is. It's very difficult to see how he wasn't starting for the Munster A's in the final. I think he could be a top class Out Half (even if we'll see him at 12 more often than not for the next season or two), and is further confirmation to me that our best young players are backs and that this obsession with returning to turnip rugby is misguided.

    Henderson is pure quality, like a cross between Ferris and POC. Please god the Ulster 'promising world class backrow' injury curse that has affected Pollock and looks to be affecting Ferris will stay away from him. I'd love to see him persisted with at lock. He can do all the work of a lock but with the intensity and athletesism of a backrow, that's diamond stuff. We'll never suffer for backrows in this country.
