Ulster Squad 2019/20

Post by rumncoke » Wed May 22, 2019 12:20 pm

Kernohan personally I consider the caps he has to date are due to injuries ,to be honest decent enough player, but I don’t see a long term future at Ulster .

Hayden Hyde - believe he is actually IQ and has played for Ireland at U18 & U19 as part of the exiles set up. Think he is fairly highly rated - England had named him in an underage training squad also.

Should have waited one more day, with departures of Pete Nelson, David Busby and Jack Owens announced:

Prop [9]: O'Sullivan (23) - McGrath (29) - McCall (27) - Warwick (28) - O'Hagan (25) - Moore (28) - O'Toole [20] - Kane (24) - Milasinovich (26)
Hooker [3]: Herring (29) - Andrew (26) - McBurney (22)
Lock [4]: Henderson (27) - O'Connor (26) - Treadwell (23) - Carter (29)
Back Row [7]: Rea (25) - Ross (30) - Murphy (28) - Reidy (30) - Timoney (24) - Coetzee (28) - Jones (23)
Scrum-half [3]: Cooney (29) - Shanahan (26) - Stewart (21)
Out-half [3]: Burns (25) - Johnston (22) - Lowry (21)
Centre [5]: Marshall (28) - McCloskey (27) - Curtis (21) - Addison (27) - Hume (20)
Back three [5]: Gilroy (28) - Stockdale (23) - Lyttle (22) - Faddes (27) - Ludik (32)

39 in total, which is quite light - albeit I can see that number going back up to 42 with promotions to development / full contracts for Marcus Rea (who was year 3 academy last year) and Baloucoune. (Other year 3 academy players: McCall and Hall, what's the story with them does anyone know?)

Yes the other names mentioned of course have been Hayden Hyde and David O'Connor, but in the absence of any official confirmation, I haven't included them yet.

I think this is it then, with the announcement of the academy promotions:

Prop [9]: O'Sullivan (23) - McGrath (29) - McCall (27) - Warwick (28) - O'Hagan (25) - Moore (28) - O'Toole [20] - Kane (24) - Milasinovich (26)
Hooker [4]: Herring (29) - Andrew (26) - McBurney (22) - McCall (24)
Lock [4]: Henderson (27) - O'Connor (26) - Treadwell (23) - Carter (29)
Back Row [8]: Rea (25) - Ross (30) - Murphy (28) - Reidy (30) - Timoney (24) - Coetzee (28) - Jones (23) - Rea (21)
Scrum-half [3]: Cooney (29) - Shanahan (26) - Stewart (21)
Out-half [3]: Burns (25) - Johnston (22) - Lowry (21)
Centre [6]: Marshall (28) - McCloskey (27) - Curtis (21) - Addison (27) - Hume (20) - Moore (20)
Back three [7]: Gilroy (28) - Stockdale (23) - Lyttle (22) - Faddes (27) - Ludik (32) - Baloucoune (22) - Kernohan (20)

Total of 44 full & development contracts. Plus potential arrival of O'Connor and Hyde.

How did Ian Henderson get to be 27? Seems like only yesterday that he was the 'man-child', playing beyond his years. I must be getting really old.

I should say that the ages I've included are what age they will be at the start of the new season in Sept, so Dave is just 25 (for another few weeks!)

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 starts again next season and does well he will step up.

As far as I’m aware Hume and Lowry signed a 3 year deal and the first year was a development then 2 years senior. Funny feeling The Cat will be moved up to a senior contract with the other two very soon.

McPhillips to Leicester Tigers. Good move for him I think.

Seen as a replacement for Joe Ford, should get some game time with George Ford missing with England.

He seems a decent lad. Pretty good off the tee but tends to sit a bit deep. Got age on his side and should get better.
