No.
NEVER MOVE ON. Years on, I cannot ever watch Ireland with anything but indifference, I continue to wish for the imminent death of Donal Spring, the FIRFUC's executioner of Wee Paddy & Wee Stu, and I hate the FIRFUCs with undiminished passion.

Murphy and Simpson are both in the academy next year, have heard that Paul Jackson has got an academy deal.

A lot of talk of
Michael Lagan
Alex Thompson
Jacob Stockdale
Jack Owens

all going straight in to the academy as school leavers.

Who is Paul Jackson? What about these two props from Leinster?
From the rolling glens of Antrim through the hills of Donegal we will stand and shout for Ulster as we win both scrum and maul from the lovely lakes of Fermanagh tae the shores of ould Lough Gall we will scream and shout for Ulster as we beat them one and all!

Paul Jackson is Paddy's brother. He's a hooker who is quite highly rated but apparently has a bit of a hot streak.

Craig Trenier, TH, 6ft2 119kg
Denis Coulson, LH, 6ft 107kg

Trenier was meant to start the 1st game for the Irish under-20's but got injured and missed the JWC.
Coulson has been the backup LH for 20's behind Dooley.

Both are big solid props, heard more rumours about Trenier joining Ulster than Coulson.
Neither came that close to joining the Leinster academy, althought Trenier was closer if he had performed well at the JWC he may have gotten an offer from Leinster.

Hadn't heard about Coulson, could be a good option.

Dow and Taggart for sure.. doubt Arnold will, probably will have a year in the sub-academy to see if he is upto scratch..

similar to Dow and Taggart this year...

I would assume David Busby is going into the academy?

Jack Owens and Jacob Stockdale are two elite talents in the backs.. big fast and talented..

Great so Ulster Rugby are signing Leinster props who didn't start for Ireland U-20's whilst letting an Ulster prop who demolished the baby black pack leave Irish shores....makes a whole lot of sense.
