This is one of the really annoying aspects of the website - if someone hasn’t played this season then their last seasons page is left up so at a quick glance it looks like (for example) Barry Daly has played 9 games so far this season
For players who have left you go straight to the last year they've played. Which could be a while ago.

For players who havent played this season you read the season instead of loading a blank page. I prefer the current way.

Is this this season? I don't recall Mullin or Patterson featuring in any 23s in 2019/2020.
Correct you are. Misread their profiles on website.
Didn’t Mullins cap come the season before last against scarlets? I have a vivid recollection of this game for some reason, game was meaningless as far as I remember.

Mullin's two sub appearances have been in games away against Edinburgh last season and at home to Zebre the previous season.
Look out Itchy, he's Irish

Hooker is interesting going forward:
Does Dan Sheehan move to the senior squad next season?
Does a u20 hooker join the academy next season? And if so who? John McKee or Bobby Sheehan?
Or do they wait for a u19 hooker to prove himself? Lee Barron, Ronan Loughnane or Levi Vaughan?

Care to have a stab at the Academy for next season?

I see you know your underage rugby.

My prediction for Academy next season:
Lee Barron (hooker/ St Michael’s College)
Will Hickey (backrow/ St Michael’s College
Chris Cosgrave (utility back/ St Michael’s College)
Andrew Smith (wing/ St Michael’s College)
Mark Hernan ( potentially depending on how he performs in this 6 nations) (backrow/ St Michael’s College)
Alex Soroka (lock/ backrow) Belvedere College
This could all change depending on how the six nations go, but Chris Cosgrave, Alex Soroka and Andrew Smith look almost guaranteed for Academy next season

Well the u20 age group isn't very strong talent wise and two of them are already in the academy.. I'd expect Hernan and Smith to join them.. Maybe SOB but not sure on him.

Then I'd imagine it will be the top talents in the u19 age group will have a strong chance of joining along with Jack Boyle and Karl Martin in the u18 age group.

I thought Smith was a late inclusion this season?

Other than that bang on. My gut feeling is that it will be one of Hernan or SOB as with Hickey also getting in will Leinster really take in 3+ players in the same position? Maybe take in Hickey & Hernan and then maybe see how SOB goes in the summer and maybe induct him late on.

Smith is unclear tbh. Expect he will be announced officially this summer tho.

Dont know if Hickey will join straight from school.. At least officially. SOB may lose out to Soroka if anyone. Wait and see it's still very early.
