Draws up on leinster rugby. Handy one for Rock, CBC and Clongowes. Major clash-repeat of Junior Cup final in 05 between Belvo and Nure.

Great Draw for cbc considering what they've had over the past few years.

I honestly think they'll go all the way this year.
One of the most physical teams in the cup, but also one of the most skillfull...
6 leinsters including u-19 interpro's captain.


Montys doing a decent job there as Head coach.


Lets hope they dont bottle it......

Ah but Rock are due to play Clongowes in the next round, assuming they both progress. Some tasty matches on the cards in both competitions.
The Godfrey and Vinnie Murray cups also have some interesting clashes in them.

It would be brilliant for the cup to see CBC win it.

Cbc beat Micheals fairly handily without alot of starters already this season.

I know come cup time it's all gonna be different, but still..


Castleknock are Not bad, but Not the strongest team by a long shot, but again, preseason form and league results go out the window when the cup starts.*edit*

Only seen them play twice this year, and were'nt too convincing.

I don't think a Michaels victory of Pres Bray is a certainty. Pres ran CBC close for 60 minutes in the league semi-final. 2 very late trys put a gloss on the score. I reckon its a CBC V Belvo final though

Have Maros a sniff this year? Theire draw (if I'm right) has them avoiding big tickets like Rock, Clongowes, Nure.

cwc never do to well in the j's , they do have a good seniors though. this CBC team seem to be talking themselves up a lot ... its never easy playing the champions. michael's have 7 players returning from the cup winning side and 3 reserves. they also have andrew pollard back who broke his leg a week before the cup last year but started prop for michaels and leinster u18s when he was in 4th year. noel reid is still only in 6th year as well . pre cup form really doesn't matter, michaels lost 4 games pre cup last year and then only conceded 18 points in the whole cup... 3 years ago the michaels team of 05 were talking themselves up a lot, they won every single pre cup game- thats about 13 games... they just about beat cwc in the first round and then lost by 7 in the quarters to rock

Where they will likely face CBC.

Good to see teams like Maynooth and St Pats Navan making progress and to DLS Churchtown back in there....they had 3 finals and 2 wins in the 80's FFS....
