    Is that the same Steve Mcmahon, that got sent off yesterday?

    That Greaoid Lyons looks a real classy type of OH, could have a big future.

      Yes. From Dungarvan but moved to rockwell 2 years ago.
      Will getting sent off yesterday impact him playing any of these games?

        I'm not sure Ormond, maybe not, to be fair I think the young lad had enough punishment in getting sent off in the biggest day of his young career. Hopefully he learns from it,and becomes a better player from it.

          I think you're automatically banned.
          On the internet, you can be anything you want. It always amazes me why so many people choose to be stupid.

            McMahon sweats on tour spot

            Tuesday, March 19, 2013
            By Barry Coughlan
            Devastated at his team’s shock defeat to Crescent in yesterday’s Munster Schools Senior Cup final at Thomond Park, young Rockwell full back Steve McMahon faces a traumatic 24 hours as he sweats on his availability for an Irish overseas tour.
            McMahon was shown a red card for a tip tackle on Crescent centre William Leonard and it could cost him a place in Ireland’s U19 squad to participate in the FIRA Championships in Grenoble, the team due to leave for France tomorrow.

            McMahon’s fate hinges on a report from referee Kieran Barry and the verdict of a disciplinary committee that has been appointed to meet today.

            At least the timing of the meeting will be some consolation to the youngster as the committee, depending on the referee’s report, might well find the red card was enough punishment for the talented youngster and give him with enough time to link up with Ireland.

            There would be a measure of sympathy for McMahon, who has no track record of foul play.

            Rockwell, denied the three-in-a-row by a determined Crescent, were playing down the significance of the incident in relation to the outcome of the result.

            Coach Mark Butler figured the Limerick school were already on their way to the a tenth title when McMahon was sent off.

            “We have no complaints whatever about the outcome, they were a lot more clinical in the first half, the red card I don’t think had a bearing on the game,” he said. “I think Crescent had their lead established by then and as well as attacking us they also defended extremely well.

            “Full credit to Crescent, but I was also proud of our guys who fought until the end, we had quite a young side out to finish up with and they showed great character.”

            Crescent’s Conal Doyle was ecstatic, pointing to a flawless all-round performance and the contribution of out-half and skipper GearĂ³id Lyons.

            “Everything clicked for us today, I think GearĂ³id particularly was superb for us, he kept the scoreboard ticking over and it’s not an easy thing to do under such pressure. It’s very hard for an opposition team when they see somebody nailing kicking chances like that all the time, but for our guys it was a huge lift.

            “Overall, he and Gary [Fitzgerald] at nine were exceptional, I suppose all the backs did all the right things.”

            The forwards, and particularly the back row?

            “You know yourself, the forwards win the game for you in a sense, they won the battle up front and did everything they were required to do. Everyone, including the lads off the bench, contributed.”
            It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

            Every plan I have is the best plan in the room. Everybody get quiet and listen to it, and everybody will win

                Think there is 7 or 8 munster players in the squad. Steve McMahon and Sean McNulty from Rockwell are def involved.
                Presume Greg o Shea and Gearoid Lyons from Crescent will be in the squad. Prob another 1/2 from the cork schools and another from Crescent, maybe 1/2 from Munchins(Luke o Halloran maybe)

                      Greg O'Shea (Crescent winger) and Sean McNulty (Rockwell hooker) the only Munster lads in the schools squad.

                          None of them go to school in Dublin.

                            I'd imagine these results in the U-18 Interpros had a fairly large bearing on the make-up of the squad.

                            Leinster 68 Ulster 5
                            Munster 12 Leinster 34
                            Leinster 61 Connacht 3

                              True........sadly, not even a token Connacht player from the looks. 10 backs from Leinster? With Rockwell coach the backs coach surely should've had more pull! And 10 forwards, the entire leinster 18s more or less?
