LH Prop
Marcus Hanan (21/Clane RFC/Old Belvedere) - Year 3
Jack Boyle (19/St. Michaels/UCD) - Year 2

TH Prop
Temi Lasisi (20/Enniscorthy RFC/Lansdowne) - Year 2
Rory McGuire (U20/Blackrock College/UCD) - Year 1

Hooker
John McKee (22/Campbell/Old Belvedere) - Year 3

Backrow
Alex Soroka (21/Belvedere/Clontarf) - Year 3
Sean O'Brien (21/Blackrock/UCD) - Year 3
Mark Hernan (21/St. Michaels/Lansdowne) - Year 2
James Culhane (U20/Blackrock/UCD) - Year 1

Scrumhalf
Ben Murphy (20/Pres Bray/Old Wesley) - Year 2

Outhalf
Charlie Tector (19/Kilkenny/Lansdowne) - Year 1

Centre
Ben Brownlee (U20/Blackrock/UCD) - Year 1

Back Three
Rob Russell (23/St. Michaels/DUFC) - Year 2
Andrew Smith (21/St. Michaels/Clontarf) - Year 3
Niall Comerford (21/Blackrock/UCD) - Year 3
Max O'Reilly (21/St. Gerards/DUFC) - Year 3
Chris Cosgrave (20/St. Michaels/UCD) - Year 2
Aitzol King (U20/Balbriggan RFC-CUS/Clontarf) - Year 1
Surely one or two of the back three players will be moved on to the 7's program?

No locks in the academy would be a surprise.


Spicer shaped hole!

Seriously though, I'd have thought that one of the lads from this years 20's would have got a chance.

COT is u19 so has another year, along with Mangan at that age grade and Spicer coming up.

he went to Roscrea but played club rugby with Terenure.

I think Jack Aungier may have played a season of club rugby with Nure, not sure how much he actually played AIL though.

Gunne on the bench :shock:

I can't remember a schools player appearing for the A team before, Aaron Sexton did it for Ulster IIRC but can't think of anyone else in modern times.

Great to get these guys another game after some returning from SA and some training heavily with seniors for last few weeks.

Interesting that Diarmuid Mangan starts, Lancaster name checked him this week didn't he?

The 21 for the AIL team is the other Leinster U19s scrumhalf. He's still in school. Would be good to see the two of them on at the same time.

Ben Griffin is good enough to be with a provincial academy.

Saw him in Castle Avenue against Terenure and couldn't understand how he wasn't involved with a province. Exactly the type of frame required for a pro tight head. With a pro S&C programme he could be really excellent
