South Africa and Georgia will join Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, France and Italy with each of the countries playing three pool games and a crossover match. The details of the tournament are expected to be announced during the week, but it appears that Ireland will face France, England, and South Africa in their three matches.

While Ireland will take most of the squad that won all five games in the Six Nations, they will also include several Under-19 internationals with a view to giving a handful of highly rated younger players some experience at this level ahead of next season. The Ireland Under-19 team under Kieran Hallett drew 1-1 in a two-match series against France played in Belfast and Dublin last month.

Murphy’s side will definitely be without wing Chay Mullins, who will be with James Topping’s Men’s Sevens squad during the summer.
Does that mean several people that just finished 6th year will be involved?

No, it means players who are already out of school will be involved.

The UCD men are:

Conor O’Tighearnaigh
Diarmuid Mangan
Michael Moloney
Fionn Gibbons
Shane Mallon
Dylan OGrady

James Culhane and Rory McGuire are likely to miss out due to injury but Ben Brownlee is on track to recover in time to join the squad shortly.

Jack Boyle will miss out also due to Leinster commitments.

Is there a trophy? Is it intentional that the four best sides are all playing each other, and the four worst sides all playing each other?

Very encouraging for Ulster with 9/18 forwards, especially as the province is well set in terms of backs. Worrying for Connacht, with zero participants. Is Matthew Devine injured?

Originally Connacht, but Munster have sought to turn his head and he may be off there now.

Interesting. Of the two teams I'd be picking Connacht but we will see where he lands. Regardless I hope he does well.

Shame about the injuries but in a way it's good. Those players have proved themselves already so now another group get to. I don't see them winning any match but hopefully they will put in a good showing.

Yeah, there's a silver lining. If this was a JWC, it'd be really disappointing - the Grand Slammers are a great team and would have an excellent chance of getting to the final. And once in the final, I'd have given them a good shot, because they've come from behind to win in their two toughest games.

However, it seems like a bit of a Rainbow Cup effort, and a one-off tournament just doesn't carry the same weight as an annual. Against that, it has some worth because it's an agegrade competition. Overall, I'd rather have a team in it and give lads a chance to represent their country than to have them toiling in obscurity.
