If McKee is up his own jam roll as you say then he'll probably fit in well at Leinster

Number of 1, number 2 and number 12 the stand out Ulster players for me. Australia had some good backs on show.
Nice to see a different perspective on things, I watched and thought the Australian front row had the better of ours, Oz certainly dominated in the scrum and at lineout in my opinion. As a forward unit our maul was good but then so was theirs, great catch and drive for the Oz second try which our pack had no answer to.

Nathan Doak at scrum half was my pick of the Ulster lads. DId all of his basic really well and had a knack for continually pinning Oz back any time their back three were out of position.

Oz back line interplay for their first try was top drawer stuff.

To be fair, hooker isn't where we're hurting, and it doesn't look like we will be there for some time.

Loosehead though, we've less than scraps.
More to this story.

All I will say is - I back ulster on this.

interesting, McKee has captained Ulster schools, Ireland schools and Ireland u19. Suggesting he is some sort of prima-donna is odd given he has been given a leadership role in all of those teams.

Fairly notable that those dominant RBAI sides of recent years look like they will only produce 3 academy players - Hume, Lowry and McCann.

Ballymena, Campbell & Wallace look set to produce more than that as might Bangor GS.

Graham Curtis in the ireland u20 is just laughable. He’s 3rd choice at Malone. Watched him a few times this year and he is nowhere near the level required.

Azur Allison will overtake Dunleavy by the sounds of it.

Callum Reid in the sub academy. He hasn’t played since Schools cup final apparently.
ROD keeps going the way he is then I wouldn’t be surprised to see him involved.

I was chatting a guy the other day about the Semi final against Ballymena in Lowry’s year.

Ballymena had Clarke,Rea and Allison in the pack.
Ballymena’s backline - Stronge, Houston, Kernanhon and Moore as 9,10,12 and 13.

RBAI beat them 45-3.

I see Ireland Under 19s lost to Australia Schools, that make the Ulster result even better.
