Just seen a few clips of this boy. Wish we had a few 17year olds like this to chuck in the at the deep end. How good is he?

Will you swap for Niall O'Connor?

very talented,still very young and bit small,going to be brilliant!!
O'Connor is being targeted by the Reds, and Force chief executive Mitch Hardy admits he faces a fight to retain the teenager. Potentially, we are looking at a Matt Giteau-type player in the way he can find a gap and hit players with long passes. He's certainly got the skill attributes of a Matt Giteau.They are really keen to retain his services.The Australian Schoolboy, 180cm and 83kg

Cant imagine he would want to come to ulster!!

His father Warren, born in Auckland, and grandfather both played high-level rugby in New Zealand. O'Connor's mother is South African and his great-grandfather went close to representing the Springboks. While his preference is to represent the Wallabies, the teenager is keeping his options open. Can play for all the tri nations teams!!
