Surely has to be a better 10 at u18 or u19 than Houston.

Thought we were beating Munster and on par with Leinster at u19/20 level the last few years yet we have a pitiful representation once again??

Obviously Leinster are on a planet of their own but results wise the last few years its been even enough has it not as well as being better than Munster?

Yep, it has. But this age group were never the best. Ulster had good players last season and this years u18s and u19s would all be better than this years Ulster u20s. In my opinion.

The u20 setup is not the be all and end all. Infact there is something awry with it.

Oh for sure, especially considering their treatment of Lowry last year.

At least there are some real prospects this year in Allison and McCann for the backrow. Moore as well from what we've seen should have a real impact if he can get over his injury problems.

Very disappointed that we have not seen more of Moore other than a great performance in an pre season friendly at Kingspan. I thought he showed real potential.

Can do both well.

I was chatting to a member of the squad over the summer and I was asking who was looking good in preseason. His reply ‘Will Addison and Stewart Moore are different level’. At this stage I didn’t know much about Addison.
