England in particular have really benefited from concentrating resources at this level and fast tracking these lads through the pro ranks.
On that logic we should be in pretty good shape.
England also produce gym monkeys

English 13 offside there - was in front of the player that slipped it to him after our dodgy throw!

england consistently offside in numbers at each breakdown but ref letting them off with it.

ref seems to be only reffing one team.

England get try after driving through Irish scrum - despite having the drive on before the ball was put in.

Well beaten unfortunately. England just too powerful at the breakdown.

I may be dreaming Santa but wasn't McPhillips given a development contract a few months back? Stockdale too from memory, not sure about M'Burney.
Yep you're right, though based on his performance today the only reason I can think of McPhillips graduating early has to be that someone was sniffing about him. McBurney is in the new academy intake, though that hasn't been announced, Greg Jones the 6 from today is likely moving up from Leinster to join us.

Men against boys there.
Still, beat NZ for the first time by any men's team and got to the final.
Five players could make senior internationals: Porter, McBurney, Ryan, Deegan and Stockdale.

I think that's good for a relatively small country.
