List of players in the Leinster academy for the 2019/20 season

Leinster Rugby have announced the list of players that will form the 2019/20 Academy.

Noel McNamara, the recently appointed Leinster Rugby Academy Manager said, “This is a significant announcement for these young men that have all impressed over the last few years and we are delighted to be able to reward them with Academy contracts.

“However, they would be the first to recognise that the real hard work starts now but they will look at the progress of the likes of Scott Penny and Hugh O’Sullivan and will know what can be achieved even in your first year.

“We wish them the very best of luck in the Academy system and look forward to supporting them throughout that journey.”

Leinster Rugby have already confirmed that seven players have been promoted from the Leinster Academy system and will start the 2019/20 season as part of the Senior squad.
