    Who do you think are some of the best young prospects under the age of 20 right now?

    From the Wallabies its definetly James O'Connor, then the likes of Robert Horne, Quade Cooper and David Pocock.

    From those who are yet to make super 14 level. I'd say Rodney Davies, Aiden Toua, James Slipper.

    From a Scottish side, a name to look out for is Stephen McColl.

    From South Africa, young Francois Ebersohn. A centre playing for the Cheetahs. He is a huge prospect for us.

    Second the Robert Ebersohn mention. Fantastic talent.

    I'll also throw in another Cheetah player by the name of Coenie Oosthuizen. 128kg 19 year old prop, who has done so well this year.

    18yo inside centre, Grant Anderson. Made his club debut against Samoa before the world cup and should have been given MOTM in that game. Quick, a decent pass and a strong carrier.

    Could go on to great things if luck's on his side.

    Leigh Halfpenny aswell Cyril! I'm also sure alot of those name are at least 20, if not older. But they all have huge potential.

    Jason Tovey is the unsung youngster coming through imo, he's another natural like Halfpenny who's had good games every time he's played for the Dragon's.

    You'll need to narrow it down more.
    You realise that covers half the Welsh population, right? <_<

    Halfpenny, Biggar, Warburton, Lewis and John Davies are Welsh ones that stand out for me.

    God, I can't wait till Warberton returns, he's the best of the lot! Phenomenal prospect, will be the Blues and Wales' no 6 in no time imo.

    Zac Guilford. He plays on the wing for Hawke's Bay and the Hurricanes. Looked a class act when he got his chance with the 'Canes. He's already fairly well known in New Zealand already, and a few were picking him to be given a go on this tour.

    ummm Sam Warburton?

    I really only pay attention to back-row prospects...so how bout, David Pocock, Nasi Manu, Rapael Lakafia looked good in wales this year, gerrit van velze was not bad either

    Morgan Parra has played a few games for France and is still 19.

    Owen Farrell is looking impressive. He's actually played in the correct position (unlike his father) and has pace and intelligence (again..unlike his father).
     
  18. Bullitt

    How do you know that...? His father could be the milkman!

    Don't be silly! They can't afford milkmen up north! :lol:

    Zac guilford, he plays for the Hurricanes. Don't know if he's mentioned already but left a very good impression on me last season.

    The Baa Baa thread just reminded me of someone! Nick Koster from WP, the 19 year old 8th man. Watson can kiss the number 8 jersey goodbye
