All in all how did the Ulster guys do, is McCann the next big thing at an area of weakness, what about Allison, Moore, Kernighan? Is Allison a good bit lighter than McCann, did it show on the pitch? Reckon both McCann and Allison will get game time during World Cup period. Sent from my iPhone using...

Re: Any word on the Academy?

Very disappointing then considering the following have been dropped? No Ethan McIlroy, Lewis Finlay, Conor McMeniman – Letterkenny Dave O'Connor – lock or backrow Michael Stronge – U22 Rhys O'Donnell – or centre/wing Ben Power – U20 McIlroy and O’Donnell are the two that really hurt. The rest would...

Re: Ireland u20s

worth bearing in mind for anyone downplaying the result, that England team is littered with guys with significant amounts of AP rugby under their belts - far more than the Irish squad, the only guy with meaningful first team experience is Kernohan Incredible result,they have done it twice against a...

No Ethan McIlroy, Lewis Finlay, Conor McMenamin or Ben Power? Callum Reid(LH Prop) - u20 Tom Stewart(Hooker) - u18 Aaron Sexton(Wing) - u19 Hayden Hyde(Centre) - u18 Conor Rankin(Fullback) - u18 Finlay is playing Hinch 2s behind ROD so I would like to think he’s nowhere near it.

Do we have a list of next season's likely Academy? Sexton x2 Rankin Armstrong declined his place. Not sure of anyone else. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Reid seems possible. Who's the other Sexton? Tom Stewart do you mean? Other candidates, Oscar Egan, George Saunderson, Matthew Sands, can't r...

Re: Ulster Squad 2019/20

I don’t know enough about any criteria for players to get full contracts but given his performances and apoearances this season, I am a bit surprised to see Baloucoune on a development contract when some of the other young guns in the backs have moved on to full contracts. I am sure if he gets some...

Re: Any word on the Academy?

He won't be playing 7s next season If KOTH says he'll be playing 7s next year and won't be in an Ulster shirt unless something has changed the last week I'd say you've heard wrong Gerry! Just what I heard the other week. Things obviously could change. I have my fingers crossed that he won’t go away...

Sexton is playing 7s next year. Won’t be in an Ulster shirt at least for a year.

Re: UBL 2018/19

Couple of interesting implications there, mostly that all the eggs are being put in the Hinch basket. I don't think they'll stay up no matter what they do, while it's good for Hinch to get those top players I feel sorry for Ballymena who have already lost McBurney and may struggle to rebuild.
