SOME of Limerick’s Ireland under 20s got good news this week when then were named in the eleven that would join the Greencore Munster Rugby Academy ahead of the 2017/18 season.
Fresh from last month’s World Rugby U20 Championship in Georgia Liam Coombes (Garryowen), Joey Conway (UL Bohs), Conor Fitzgerald (Shannon), Jack Stafford (Shannon) and Alan Tynan (Young Munster) have all been included.
With five academy players already confirmed for senior promotion this summer – Stephen Fitzgerald, Dan Goggin, Bill Johnston, Conor Oliver and Brian Scott – the latest intake brings the number of players to 20 in the Academy.
Joining the Ireland U20 representatives are Craig Casey (Arscoil Rís), Daniel Hurley (Garryowen), Alex McHenry (Cork Con) and Jack O’Sullivan (PBC), advancing from the province’s development pathway, while Jack Power and James McCarthy join from the Leinster Academy and Welsh underage system respectively.
