Munster youths lost to Connacht 14-6 today
Munster A schools lost to Leinster in Musgrave today 22-13.
Munster were better their Leinster outwide but lost out upfront but Munster were missing 1 or 2 of their stronger forwards.
Munster didnt play the conditions well enough and if they're a bit smarter next wednesday in donnybrook and the missing players are back Munster may overturn the 9 point deficit and win the joe weafer trophy
Game was excellant standard and hopefully next weeks game is even better.
Match report is below. one mistake in article. the other winger got the try not carey

Looks like youths management have looked at the A schools squad as toby ademakin is on the bench. He played with the A schools wednesday
I was out in Ashbourne at the U19 game Munster lost 23 -19. Conceding two bad tries from intercepts our handling was poor with multiple knock on's
Positives were the scrum , general forward play, Scored three great tries, individual players allot of talent in the team. Lineout was a lottery .
I have been following this thread with interest all summer. A sincere thank you to all who have been keeping us up to date on the latest interpro news. Is it true that Connaught won the U19 with a few players who were not seen as good enough by the Munster management. Not even good enough for the standby list if memory serves me right.
The youths beat Ulster 34-12
Going to rockwell hasnt changed much in terms of results in the interpros.
20s interpros: 1/3
19s interpros: 1/3
18s schools: 1/3
18s youths: 1/3 with 1 to play
A schools: 1/2 with 1 to play
taught Youths had only played 2 matches?
What were the corresponding results from last year?
Only 1 u19 team this year. Move to Rockwell for Summer. Did we make progress?
Dont think the move to rockwell has improved things but things like looking at improving coaching in schools/clubs etc needs to be looked at so players are better before they get to provincial level
A full analysis cant really be made until the irish squads are picked for their training camps next month and can be compared - both to number of munster players in irish squads in previous years and to the numbers from other provinces to make this seasons irish squads
The Rockwell camp is more geared towards long term player development IMO. The players will have learned alot from it and now have a greater knowledge of whats expected of them. I think we'll have to wait until next year to see results because if the players need time to catch up with their Leinster, Ulster and Connacht counterparts in terms of conditioning and fitness etc.
If its working you'll have to ask the individual players, wait until next years interpros and wait to see how many Munster players make the 2013/14 Ireland U20 squad.
A schools beat Leinster in donnybrook today 20-18 but Leinster won on aggregate
Munster went 18-3 down early in 2nd half after Leinster scored a try that should have been disallowed due to crossing.
Munster went up and dominated rest of game. Munsters James Reeves scored a try off a lineout maul to go 18-8 down and then munster recieved kick off the backs threw 3 15metre passes and got another try.
Great game and it was Munsters first win against Leinster in any age grade interpro this season
4 Feb 2011 - Gilmore on the General Election
"Frankfurts way or Labours way."
28 Feb 2012 - Gilmore on a yes vote for the fiscal treaty
"A vote for economic stability and a vote for economic recovery."
Did a quick search on Courts.ie. The Munster Branch are not showing up as defendants or respondents to any High Court action in the last two years. If it were in the Circuit, it'd already be listed, set down and in the callover lists (which it's not, certainly not in the Cork Circuit). If it's even being talked about, it seems to have gone no further.
Vorsprung durch Pfennig.
So with the Munster a schools wraped up for another year , what will become of the players ? There is some talented youngsters in the squad with a great future ahead of them if they get the chance , jack o Donnell , Andrew Carey and Kerry Desmond to name a few . How did the youth side get on today against Leinster ?
There was some very talented players playing for munster.several of whom should have got a look at for the youths/19s though some did. prop toby adamakin who is in the youths squad for the leinster game tomorrow had been in the A schools squad until a
Some will play munster youths next september, some may/will play 19s/20s. The rest will play with their club/school at u17/u19/senior schools level.
Some of the players have been playing at 1sts/2nds/3rds level in their clubs already.
Munster youths lost to Leinster 10-7
