Rare enough for an u20 number 10 to be starting week in week out for his AIL team.

Typical Irish lack of vision re players' positions. Izuchukwu would be a very interesting giant wing/centre, just as for example Tony Buckley would have made a mean Billy Vunipola-style number (only several inches taller).

Leinster Dev played against 2 Irish teams - lost both (3 tries to nil and 2 tries to nil). Some familiar names on Leinster side were Ronan Loughnane, Fionn Gilbert, Will O’Callaghan, Ed Brennan, Cillian Redmond, Mick O’Gara, Josh O’Connor & James Reynolds.

Why isn’t Rob Gilsenan Michael’s / UCD in the sun-academy? A serious baller, all round reader of the game and Cooney-sequel in playing the French way. I think he was injured most of last Summer.

If he gets an offer to. Turning down a sub academy place is risky business.

I wouldn’t be sure that Pilot123 has represented Gilsenan correctly either.

Whatever about your obvious trolling. Speculation about a person's personal life is not really on and very disingenuous to this player. You should consider deleting your comments

In fairness, I don’t think Pilotman123 is a troll, just a very young and inexperienced poster…who should delete the aforementioned comments.

If you want me to delete comments then it would be a good idea to not quote it because I can’t delete comments if someone quotes it
