Shameless poaching again from Leinster, similar to Caelan Doris


Went to Clongowes and played for Leinster u18, u19 and u20. :thumbup:

Don't think he got a contract, surprised they didn't have Patrick Finlay(DUFC) in.

You might know, IRUA. Is Paddy Finlay still associated with Ulster?

Not as far as I'm aware, played with Leinster A two seasons ago IIRC.

Was with Ulster for 20's when he didn't make Leinster squad IIRC.

He is finished college now, so maybe he chose to keep working than come in and train with leinster.

Curtis would consider themselves Irish, more Irish than Rhys Ruddock for example.

Really, Rhys was born in Ireland to an Irish mother.
Ruddock senior has Irish connections.

The more interesting thing is Willie's ability to be able to read Rhys Ruddocks mind and determine how he views his nationality.

Had the Curtises even been to Ireland before joining up with Ulster? The whole family lives out there don't they?

Don't actually know on either count. Them being named is the first I've heard of it. Team announcement, just says they are on trial.

Only guys I could find were the FH from Ulster and 8 from Munster

May be some other lads though!

no, different one, played 6 for Lansdowne last year. Ex- Leinster 19's/20's and Castleknock. Think he played for Ireland clubs and university sides last season.

Heard he got a trial with LI.

Didn't think it would be the other bloke as he looked too good to be released by Munster and just did his cruciate I think

Well then, if I remember correctly his reputation was of a pretty talented lad with a very good running game but poor game control and kicking. Maybe got a bit of a raw deal from Ulster after a personality clash.

He went from being highly rated to released pretty quickly, was with Connacht and Ulster. Ex-exile.

O'Hagan got some hype when he was in Ireland:

http://www.irishrugby.ie/news/32291.php#.W3WPTTpKhhE

Was with Richmond last season.

There was the feeling that he maybe wasn't given a fair go by some in the Ulster setup (he can't have been any worse than Herron who essentially replaced him), but then I had talked to some at Queens who didn't really rate him at all.

I can't remember exactly, but wasn't he given a bit more license to roam (swan) about looking to carry at Cardiff? Meant that his ball in hand performances were very good, but his all-round game wasn't necessarily up to scratch.

He was, and POM has the licence to swan for Munster, albeit he's not a very good swan. Similarly to how POC was allowed carry the ball for Munster. They do love indulging their heroes. :lol:


I reckon if he was a bit younger he would have been perfect for Irish 7's squad.

IRUA, any sign of a squad for Connacht 19's? I'm interested to see is there a lad from Mullingar in it.

Ulster have included 17-year-old Aaron Sexton, still a student at Bangor Grammar School, on their bench for Saturday's pre-season clash with Gloucester.

He won the 100m and 200m double at the All-Ireland Schools track and field championships in June.

The highly-rated Stewart Moore, a new face in Year 1 of the Ulster academy, starts in the 13 shirt.

Andrew over McBurney. x( But whatever just a preseason game.

Actually quite an interesting looking team there though the odd dud in the mix.

That’s a serious compliment from Ulster regarding Aaron Sexton. Will be watching this space.

I had inquired about him only a few weeks ago.

Maybe best not let him play away in Wales until he has committed to dropping the athletics.
