            Should be close to full round of fixtures in both sections tomorrow
            In the South Section Con are top and unbeaten, Highfield close behind with just 1 loss, against Con. Both have played 6 games. UCC and Clonakilty-Kinsale leading the rest. Waterpark-WIT at the bottom and on the end of some huge scorelines.. Narrowly lost to Sundays Well but in the rest the closest they've been to the opposition is 45 points.

            In the North Section NUIG-Corinthians are top with Young Munster behind them with a game in hand. Theyre followed by Bohs, Buccaneers and Bruff. Buccs and Bruff have a game in hand on Bohs. Crescent, Nenagh and Galwegians, who are bottom, bring up the rear.

            Cant see many sides competing at frazer mc mullan all Ireland level apart from Con and maybe Corinthians. Leinster sides too good.

              Playoffs were yesterday Con beat Young Munster 27-17, NUIG-Corinthians beat Old Crescent 26-25. Don't know other results ...
              Terenure are Leinster champions, Trinity, UCD and Lansdowne also qualify for the quarters

                Proud of what we have achieved in our first year back in under 20 rugby. With a bit of luck we could have won on Saturday and with a lot of our squad underage again next year hopefully we will go a little further in the competition next year. Best of luck to the quarter finalists.
                Its deja vu all over again!!!

                    So no Munster or Connacht side made semi finals. Lansdowne beat Trinity by a point, 16-15, at the weekend in the final

                      Ya the whole set up has to be revised.two possibly three different levels in Munster,u have con,ucc/highfield in South,young Munster/nuig/buccaneers/crescent in North,maybe two divisions can't have mismatches like this year,no good for anyone.

                        Think you are right on the format of the league needing a look at. Current North/South set up doesn't help with clubs who may be able to field at 20s but not against the top sides and the 20s competition isn't as even a playing field as it could be. If they had 2/3 divisions and perhaps split some of the lower divisions into North/South sections it would be better

                          Standard much higher in Dublin with pull of scholarships etc
                          Its deja vu all over again!!!

                            Splitting into regional for lower divisions is effectively what we have at present. Cost of running an AIL season for under 20s would be very expensive. Teams at the top in both Leinster and Munster are attracting the vast majority of the talented players leaving the other clubs struggling to field at this level. While it is not ideal by any means, unless fundamental issues are addressed our current system is probably the best option.

                              It isn't. Where are the lower divisions???
                              Clubs who felt they were not up to competing in the main two sections - North munster-Connacht or South Munster - had no other options for league competitions.
                              Teams at top do attract the very best players but there is still scope for competitions for those clubs who may not field or want to field against the likes of Con, Young Munster, NUIG-Corinthians etc

                              The standard is higher in Dublin/Leinster and scholarships isn't the reason for why it is.
