He is u19 this season and still in school. So either 18 or 19 at the moment.

Henry Walker out of JWC.

Imagine Stephen Smyth will be backup and Mikey Yarr will go as 3rd choice.

Would be disappointed if Bell was starting THP. If he gets to an international standard, I don't think he will be playing in Ireland.

I'd list people who came through the Leinster sub academy but are moving to Ulster post the U20 RWC as Leinster.

They're not Ulster players, they will be.

Ulster announced their academy intake 3 hours before they listed those lads as Ulster players on the squad announcement.
