Re: Leinster v Leinster cadet branch.

Ulster were doing alright until the Burns intercept. Leinster are by far the best defensive side in the league, always organised and just the right amount of playing the ref. Ulster panicked near the Leinster line and Leinster were clinical up the other end. It was frustrating to see Lowry picked at...

Lots of youngsters on here. Hickie was the first Irish winger, probably since O'Reilly, to really make you sit up and take notice. The fact that he was never picked for a Lions tour will long be a blemish on both the Ulster and Munster branches. You are excelling yourself today. Hickie was on the 2...

One of the key goals of the IRFU strategy is to encourage the provinces to assess talent across all four provinces and provide more opportunities for IQ players.
