      Was in thread about the A games that are on in states in few months time....
      We do advertise them fairly well galinka tbh. Quite a few are arranged late enough so a few webposts and social media is generally good enough. What more would you want?

        Delighted for Eoin O’Connor. Came up through Waterpark from U6s on, great lad
        "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

        Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

          Live streaming! That’s excellent- well done Munster- hope I can get it on the train as I head to Gloucester. Very very interesting looking team, some very welcome returns to the red jersey, and there will be plenty of auditions for places against Dragons and over the 6N weeks- big games for a few lads and wish them all the best. Thanks Waterfordlad for the note about Eoin O Connor, great to see guys like this coming through.

            I know they are last minute- but we used to have great regular updates about academy a players playing for clubs (thanks Giggsy) etc- a standing A thread would be a better way of organising this than under a heading about a one off game in the states.

              Munster seem to have far more senior players playing than Leinster.

                Keep an eye on the not-so-Dead Site. They provide a lot of this info now under Academy news and in squad updates. No need for somebody to have to post it here too.

                  Shur their Espoirs are more than a match for our A team. #conveyorbelt

                    I saw him play a few times. Looks like an academy prospect.
                    ​​​​​​Some good underage locks coming through now which is good news.

                      Two excellent second row prospects in Eoin O'Connor and Thomas Ahern coming though. Both products of the club system down in Waterford which is great to see.

                          First try to Munster in the corner after a nifty break and hand off. Converted for 7-0.
                          Tis but a scratch.

                            Is Ahern injured? I haven't heard a word about him for the As or senior club

                              7-3, Leinster penalty in front of posts.
                              Tis but a scratch.
