    Age Grade Interpros 15/16

    Will Munster retain under 18 schools interpro title?
    Will 20s improve on past few years and win a game or two?

    I assume squads are in Rockwell starting this day fortnight.
    Any thoughts on sides to do well this year etc

    Leinster schools should be better than last year, have several returning players headlined by Caelan Doris(6) & Conor Dean(10) who both played irish schools. Only two games with Connacht no fielding a schools side.

    Leinster clubs will be weaker that last year but they have some standout players returning in Conor Nash(15), Jack Aungier(3) and Sean O'Brien(12). This age group has been weakened somewhat by players moving to schools last season.

    Leinster under-19 is hard to predict, a weak enough schools team last year combined with a strong clubs team so it will be interesting to see how it works out.

    Leinster under-20 will be strong favourites, last year they won the 19's quite easily and that was with a weakened side. Will be a big pack at least by under-20 provincial standards.

      As far I know the munster schools and youths are in Rockwell for the summer while the 19s are based between Limerick and Cork. As for the 20s I'm not sure I've heard they are in rockwell and that there not.

        If i had to guess i'd say Bill Johnston will skip 19's and head straight to 20's.
        John Foley and Calvin Nash possibly too.

            Bayern Mark O'Mara (hooker) and Gavin Coombes (back row) from last years schools side are surely standouts? Two of the best players from the 2 interpros I saw. Particularly O'Mara

                Was very impressed with no 7 and no 15 for u 19s last year. They should be available for u 20 selection this year?

                          James O'Connor ahead of Calvin Nash? Sean O'Leary ahead of Josh Barnes?

                            Nash is still in school, but I could be wrong. If he isn't replace O'Connor with Nash.

                            Yeah O'Leary ahead of Barnes, O'Leary missed interpro's last season due to injury. Otherwise I'd say he would have started all 3 games.

                              O'leary is in the sub academy as well. Mentioned in a pre-season article on the website.
