Sean Skehan announced for Nure yesterday.

I hadn't heard Andy Skehan and UCD were parting ways. I'd imagine the UCD gig will get a lot of high profile interest given the talent pool they get every year

The announced him about a week ago on their Facebook. It'll be interesting to see if he teaches in a school in Dublin now too.

It's a very difficult player pool to coach though because you don't know who you'll have week to week so might be hard enough to get a coach willing to work with that.

By all accounts when Skehan was going for it they had very high caliber coaches going for it, household names. It’s quite prestigious and comes with the not insignificant bonus of no alicadoos

Assume you are referring the the UCD gig - I'd assume there are still alacadoo's associated with the club, but fully get that it would be nothing in comparison to the likes of other big clubs like Tarf, Mary's, 'Nure etc.

Harrison Brewer off to Panasonic in Japan, big loss for Terenure but he's definitely a professional level player so not surprising.

Would he have been worth a punt for a pro team here in Ireland? Remember huge hype of him coming out of school but similar to burgess in union they ruined him by switching him around in positions

There were talks with Irish teams apparently but don't know what happened with them, possibly they went nowhere or Panasonic offered more money which wouldn't surprise me.

Delighted for him, he played well at u20 when they moved him into centre, but never really worked out at academy level with Leinster. Moved to NZ and moved back into the backrow with Manawatu in the mitre 10.

He was stifled by the number of players coming through at the same time in the backrow, he was in the same U20s squad with Leavy, O'Donoghue, SOB2.0, Peader Timmins. And also VdF in the academy back at Leinster too.

He was a really good centre to be fair just didn't enjoy it but the academy wouldn't let him switch so his only option was to drop out and go to mitre 10 as a back row
