    Munster 5
    Connacht 4
    Is there some explanation for the poor level of Munster representation?
    It’s just a cycle. I remember playing at schools level in one of the biggest if not the biggest rugby schools in Dublin and we couldn’t compete with some of the Nordie schools. It’ll change.

      His athleticism was mentioned by the Irish U20 coach last year, and how rare it is to see a specimen like him in Ireland.

      You look at him and you can see that, despite being 6’9”, he has a fairly well proportioned frame that should fill out. Far less of a bean pole than Toner, and the fact he played wing suggests he really is a bit of a freak (meant in the most positive way).

      Be great for him to see what a fella like Snyman can do and emulate that.

          Delighted with that, especially as I was concerned Goggin might be tempted elsewhere.
          Thrilled for the young lads also


            So are Alan Tynan and Jack Stafford only Year 3 Academy lads waiting on deals?


              Great for the lads and the squad to get certainty at this early stage

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