Josh van der Flier
Josh van der Flier
- Off a conveyor belt of back row talent in Leinster, van der Flier made his senior debut for the province (against Zebre in October 2014) before completing his time in the Leinster Academy. He made the move up to the senior squad just last summer

- Making the most of his opportunities to play for UCD in the Ulster Bank League and Leinster 'A' in the British & Irish Cup, the former Wesley College student also won 11 caps for the Ireland Under-20s between 2013 and 2014

- A great reader of the game despite his tender years, he uses his frame to very good effect at openside flanker and has already made 11 starts in the Leinster number 7 jersey

- Is in his final year studying Sports Management at UCD, and cites Michael Jordan and Rory McIlroy as two of his sporting heroes
