His comments afterwards were about how he idolised Dev and Fardy growing up, so it would seem like he's being primed for 2nd Row

Yeah that was his primary position growing up.. but as I said he hasn't played there in quite some time.. instead he has been playing 6 and 8.. personally I think his future is as a lock/blindside but until he starts playing lock again..

Physically, Dunne may be the most impressive lock in the squad.. :shock:

I wonder if players ever come on here, see a post like that about them, and get a bit weirded out.

Or alternatively, if their mates ever come on here, see a post like that, and take the piss out of them.

And someone is playing with his Wikipedia page ("Gigantor", five children, and a pigeon murdering incident, which couldn't have happened as I doubt he fits on a bike).

One time posters on here were posting pictures of a kid that was in my school, who wasn't even particularly interested in or good at rugby, and talking about how he was "thick across the chest." I thought it was extremely weird.

The Japanese manga series "Gigantor" was shown here on TV in the Sixties. As a nipper I used to love it, but it didn't last very long unfortunately, before it was pulled....

Photo of dunne says a lot of where he’s at that at this stage with so many injured and internationals he is still not getting run outs with fardy and toner who are on their last years being preferred. If Dunne had maloneys bite he would be challenging the Ireland 2nd rows with his height and build

Dunnes always been a project.. and he is currently 6th choice when there have been no 2nd row injuries really and it's hardly surprising to see Leo back experienced players like Fardy and Toner in the pro 14 run in when available given how many players are away with ireland. Hopefully Dunne can get more time in the remaining pro 14 games as he will be called upon next season much more.

Like the other young locks, not including Baird, there is a lot of development needed to reach their potential.

So you can not mature early like James Ryan or Baird and still be a high quality lock? I'm listening . . .

Dev confirms he wants to play at least 1 more season on Luke's podcast.
Also notably said that Leo has taken a step back from forwards coach and that Robin McBryde has taken over there.

Says he is currently in negotiations with Leinster about extending his contract.

Cool. With Fardy likely gone it'd be nice to have not only his ability but his experience.
