    Very interesting and can only be good for the game here, hopefully catching a few lads who would otherwise slip through the net.

    Could be a thriving business if they can attract young lads from other countries too. Ireland has an excellent reputation for player development.

        Would be interested to see other costs as full time course is seriously expensive. For 24 days which can be all together or spread through a season its still nearly 3000 for that so yes it will catch those who might otherwise slip the net but only those with parents with big enough wallets....

          Unless they can find sponsors- which, if they were sensible, might even include the academies in the provinces, for cases where they weren't sure.

            The academies are never going t pay a private company 5-15k to test a player that they are not sure about. They hardly even spend that much on the players they have high hopes for. I would expect the bank of mammy and daddy to be paying for some lads who are in the sub-academy to give them a leg-up.

              partly agree, it's probably going to be the family silver that is spent, but it's in everyone's interests that this sort of iniative works, and because there woudln't (need to) be any contractual relationship, might be worth provinces' staking some cash.

                It wouldnt really. It would be far better for the provinces money to continue to be invested in the teams/players they have in theri systems already as well as putting in place more opportunities like development games, screening games for players to be looked at to see if they have potential to be academy/contracted players

                  With limitless cash maybe- but this academy is a way of allowing guys to have another crack, and a some underwriting from provinces would be a lower cost option.

                    It isnt really. This academy isnt necessarily a way for others to have a crack. We dont know at all what it'll be like considering it hasnt been ran before and provinces money would be better widenig and improving a sub academy and put into extending and improving the summer training programme with 18s-20s than putting in so much money required to pay for one/two players into this
