    Andrew Conway

    Welcome!!

    Looking forward to seeing this guy in action, very exciting talent who we'll hopefully get the best out of - scored 3 tries tonight!

    Larmour has undoubted talent and potential. So far though I've seen him score a spectacular try in TP on Stephens day, I havent seen him dominate an ariel battle or make try saving tackles in the way Conway has. He has to show the full game before he gets ahead of the pack IMO.

    100%. Back 3 is one area we're not pleased with exceptional talent. Conway definitely next in line and is a few levels up on the likes of McFadden, Larmour (for now), Byrne, Daly, Wootton, Sweetnam, OHalloran, Gilroy, Trimble in my view. All depends on what Joe wants on the bench at 23. Back 3 or centre. Carbery in 22 gives full back cover too. Then Conway vs Aki/Farrell presuming Henshaw/Ringrose will be first choice when all fit. If that ever happens!

    Edit: In hindsight Larmour does have that ability to cover 13 aswell as back 3 which could put him in driving seat for 23 jersey if he can get back into the Leinster squad!

    Joe seemed to be a fan when he was fit to be fair. I reckon he'd definitely have the 23 jersey.

    Fine player unfortunately the international coach has his favourites hence why he'll only ever be an alternate for Ireland.

    Pity

    Conway was electric the year before too when they won it and again at Senior Cup level in Blackrock's win along with Brendan Macken, Denis Buckley and captain Jordi Murphy (at lock!).

    Michael's had decent half back pairing there in '07 with Cathal Marsh and Luke McGrath. They went on to lose the Senior Cup 3 years later too with Dan Leavy on board to Tadhg Beirne's Clongowes.

    The skill the determination - and the look on his face when scoring (i.e. that's what I do) incredible. Great posting

    Also, there's no reason he shouldn't have a central contract. With Zebo and Payne seemingly out of consideration, he's clearly the best fullback available to team Ireland.
    If only Joe Schmidt could see it!

    Never in doubt!
