    Promising to see the comments from Lowe and Cullen on the younger guys, particularly the halfbacks for tonight:
    “The three inter-pros were important for (Frawley) because he got a lot of game-time,” says Cullen.

    “He started against Ulster, came off the bench in Thomond, that 20 minutes, how you manage that scenario when we’re down to 14 men… I hope he’s going to be a better player as a result of that experience and how he slotted in against Connacht.

    “He’s someone we’ve tried to invest a lot of time in and Hughie is similar — Hughie is working so hard behind the scenes and we’re trying to prepare him as best as we can.

    Lowe:
    Hughie (O’Sullivan) isn’t a physically huge ridiculous athlete but, crikey, he works so hard. He has learned the hard way.

    Eh... How come Kearney's lining out tonight? Is he that short on gametime prior to next week?

    He's only played three times since the start of November. He desperately needs the minutes.

    Yes, that's pretty much it

    Maybe he is second choice to Larmour and Joe wants him to get game time to keep him ticking over.

    I'll be very interested to see how Jack Dunne gets on if he gets a run. It's unusual for a first year academy lock to get a run with the senior team even allowing for the guys size. There's a decent enough interview with him on the Leinster site this week where he talks about the balance of study and rugby as well as his development and learning of the game.

    What jumps out is that he mentions having packed on 8kg since joining the Leinster sub-academy 18 months ago and he now stands at 6'7" and 115kg which is a serious unit for a guy who turned 20 in November.

    If he does get on the field, it will be a great test for him with the Scarlets starting Bulbring and Ball who are the Scarlets first choice pairing.

    Yeah but didn't you know he get 625 points in his leaving cert and is studying theoretical physics in Trinners?

    I was down in my secondary school recently and the sixth years are worryingly big units.

    I'd have been in school with BOD, Cullen, Gary Browne and whilst the latter two would have been tall and broad they weren't packing any of the bulk the lads now are. It's *drastically* different, many of them look professional already so 8kg in 18 months isn't completely surprising.

    Murray Kinsella tweeted that he is studying theoretical physics and got over 600 points in his leaving. Not only are these young pups getting bigger, they’re getting smarter too.

    There was an interesting article last year about Michaels students and the rate they turn pro. But also about their achievements in the Leaving.

    I seem to remember an average of 500 points or something among those who became pros which is insanely impressive

    There is a simple answer to that one.

    I would like to think so. It was a rough Christmas period on this forum. We'd do well to all get along building into the 6N when the wave of irregular posters arrive to cause chaos. Have to stick together

    I just have sneaking suspicion James Lowe is going to get a try tonight.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,619 ✭✭✭ zweton


    any radio station i can hear this?


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,254 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Looks like Frawley injured himself in a tackle.

    Seems ok now but he was rolling on the ground while being treated.

    That was nasty for Bullbring.

    Oh Rob!!
    Fresh air tackle

    Lowe didn't even look when he passed that and that was a poor missed tackle from Kearney.

    Not what you want to see from your senior players.
