I'd played club and school rugby in Limerick so my opinion may be a bit askew for not being able to see the woods for the trees- but school rubgy was taken very seriously amongst the city teams. Rivalry was as intense as with playing a local club derby. Also being teenage boys, we thought if we won against another city team we would get all the hot girls so it was a definate fight to the death match!
Its funny though-the guys that were scouted from school, I would think of as Ard Scoil/Young Munster players but guys who werent making shapes til their mid twenties, I would always just associate them with their club and province- thats probably just me though
