<div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div> Munster - 7 Leinster - 14 Connacht - 3 Ulster - 4 Exiles - 1 The biggest surprises as far as I'm concerned are the non-inclusion's of Ulster centre Michael Allen and flyhalf/centre Luke Marshall along with the Leinster backrow pair of Richard Bent and Jordi Murphy. I'm becoming like a broken record speaking about Macken and Conway as exceptional talents so I'll name some others to go along with them. Denis Buckley bullied everybody he scrummaged against in the u20 interpros. Brian Hayes is another superb 2nd row coming off the Munster production line in that position. Dominic Ryan and Rhys Ruddock are destined for higher honours in the not too distant future - I suspect both will feature for Leinster at some stage this season. James McKinney is a fine outhalf. Eoin Griffin is on the verge of a breakthrough with Connacht and given Ta'auso's frequent injury problems, will feature for them this year. Tiernan O'Halloran is the best Irish wing prospect in God knows how long. Nevin Spence played for Ulster in pre-season and has blinding pace. In my opinion, this is easily the most talented u20 squad since that which won the Grand Slam 3 seasons ago.
