    Some good players there. Could see 3 or maybe 4 starting. Is Maloney the other second row from Dolphin not making the training squads? The competition for second row is meant to be fierce this season.

      From what I've heard from a friend of family, Madigan has ostietus pubis or what ever it's called and has been out of action pretty much since the interpro's

          The last two U20 teams were impressive. This years team were technically very very good. Last years U20 team that went to South Africa had a great pack of forwards and Hanrahan and Marmion pulling the strings. I'm looking forward to seeing what next years team throws up.

                Would have been better if Fiji game was between the French, Welsh games but its not as big an issue with no NZ, SA in pool.

                Early starts for those who will want to watch games here. Their all 6am starts

                    Who's still underage from last year's squad? I can think of Adam Byrne, Dan Leavy, and Peter Dooley offhand. Leavy could captain.

                      Jack O'D is still underage too. Leavy would be a serious candidate for captaincy alright.

                        Jack O Donoghue and Peader Timmins are also underge.
                        Leavy, Sean O Brien, Jack O Donoghue are potential candidates for captain. Leavy or Sean O Brien most likely to be captain

                          Update on Madigan's fitness here;

                          "Seán MCarthy and John Madigan are both nursing injuries that have kept them out for pretty long periods at this stage, Seán has a knee injury and John a groin injury.“We’re hopeful Seán will be back in the next 2-3 weeks but again you don’t know, John Madigan is back training this week and again there’s no time frame on his return.
                          ”There’s no pressure, it’s a long-term groin injury so we just have to manage it very carefully, other than that we’re in reasonably good nick.”

                              4 out of 25 is a fairly disappointing return for Munster. Especially as we beat Leinster handily enough when we played them in the U19's in September.

                              Is Steve McMahon injured does anyone know? Would have thought he'd have been a shoe-in for that squad.
