He has been really good through the tournament too.

McErlean has lovely balance.

Osborne fitting in well too.

Lots of medium sized fair haired Leinster outside backs with good feed in this team.

I wonder would the IRFU consider moving next weeks game to a bigger venue around there? Not sure if they could at this short of notice but there'd certainly be the interest and by extension money to be made.

The speed of Gunne there was really impressive.

Prendergast should be dropped for that outrageous missed conversion. Inexcusable!

Mangan's carrying and footwork is really good.

Yeah loving his communication to be honest. Very good.

Danny Sheehan could answer a problem or two for Munster at hooker somewhere down the road

No venue really suitable. How much more would they need or get to attend?


Great performance against a poor scottish side who just had no answer to a quicker, sharper, more accurate irish side. hopefully can get a slam next week to build more for world championship in the summer

In fairness, the Cork faithful have created a magnificent atmosphere for the U20s. They deserve to keep this match in Cork.

Prendergast could be a superstar - kicking from hand and ground, passing and running game all look exceptional. Decision-making and temperament seem great - only potential weakness is tackling. Expect to see him play for Leinster regularly next year.

Yeah maybe I'm over-shooting. Thomond would be great but it's probably a bit late in the day for that sort of Move. Parc Ui C would probably be ideal if you were going to move it. Good size and not putting the 8,000-ish people who have already bought tickets out, too much.

Far too late to try get enough to make it worthwhile. its only a week and would all who have tickets for cork travel up and how much more would you get in a week even with a grand slam and championship on the line.

Too big. You'd be doing well to have it a third full which would dilute the atmosphere too much.

What does Flower Lodge hold?

I see England got their asses handed to them by France 42-7. What a humiliation in front of their own fans. Let's hope they'll receive another thrashing down in Cork

Now that's a name I haven't heard in a while. Flower Lodge (Pairc Ui Rinn) has been a GAA ground for a long long time if I'm correct.

He could be an outside bet for making the trip to SA.

We probably have enough in Harry Byrne, Frawley and Tector, but it's a big opportunity to get him into camp if they think he's ready.
