The good news, both Moore and McCann looked great for the u20s in their win over England with 1 and 2 tries respectively. The bad news, Allison picked up a knee injur early in the game, the severity of which is unclear.

Do we have a list of next season's likely Academy?
From the rolling glens of Antrim through the hills of Donegal we will stand and shout for Ulster as we win both scrum and maul from the lovely lakes of Fermanagh tae the shores of ould Lough Gall we will scream and shout for Ulster as we beat them one and all!

Armstrong declined his place.

Not sure of anyone else.

Reid seems possible. Who's the other Sexton? Tom Stewart do you mean? Other candidates, Oscar Egan, George Saunderson, Matthew Sands, can't remember whether Doak is out of school next season or not.

I don’t know why I have it in my head it’s sexton. Tom Stewart.
Reid is in.
Hyde is in.

Doak going into upper sixth.

Turns out it wasn't Allison's knee but rather his head, so yeah he's following return to play protocols now.

If he was concussed, he probably didn't know which way was up, hence them treating at the other end first.

Finlay is playing Hinch 2s behind ROD so I would like to think he’s nowhere near it.

Mcilroy not getting it ahead of Rankin is a laugh.

Power is not at that level IMO.

McIlroy not getting it in front of Rankin; please tell me this is because he is heading off to Uni and nothing to do with previous events? Have the Free Presbyterians/LGBT still too much influence?

Brother of Blayne?

I'm assuming but could be wrong that there's the suspicion he's being tarred by the same brush and suspicion UR don't want the publicity associated with Blayne?

Even though McIlroy the younger has done nothing wrong himself. :roll:
