    Ireland u18/19 2016

    Squads expected to be named this week. Would expect a lot from Munster in 19s squad considering the success in interpros. Both 18s squads are mix of club and schools players and should be confirmed later this week or early next week.

    The Under 19 Internationals are on in Dooradoyle on March 31st and April 3rd
    There is 2 under 18 squads. A 5 Nations in Wales(all 6 nations bar French who're staying in FIRA/Rugby Europe competition) and a 3 nations tournament between Ireland, England Counties and French Poles Espoirs which is on in Ashbourne

            Conor Nash in the 5 nations squad is a freak athlete and one to watch. At 6'4 he's very tall for a fullback. There's a danger of losing him to Aussie Rules apparently though (supposedly has offers on the table from teams down there).

                  Jaysus could have sworn I saw his name. He must be u19. He's in 6th year this year I believe

                      Where is Milne from? If he's played leinster youths you'd assume he's from somewhere in leinster. Declaring for munster already?

                        Played for Birr before moving to Roscrea for school.
                        Had heard he was more likely to end up with Connacht than Leinster, didn't think Munster were an option either. There is a rule in place that upto u19 level you have to play for the province your school is attached to. So it will be interesting to see who he plays with next september.

                            Milne is from Birr so it would not be that surprising that his allegiance is with Munster.

                              nope no surprise there, just surprised if he is playing for Munster u18 next september given rules in place
