It's a glowing testament to the work being carried out in the Leinster youth ranks that 12 players named in the Ireland A squads came through the system in Dublin.

No fewer than 10 of the 13 players named for the T20 clashes with Namibia next month came through the Brian O'Rourke and co. coaching system which has produced so many internationals in recent times.

Gareth Delany (Leinster), Stephen Doheny (Rush), JJ Garth (Pembroke), Shane Getkate (started at Malahide), Tyrone Kane (Merrion), Josh Little (Pembroke), Nathan McGuire (Rush), Neil Rock (Rush), Harry Tector YMCA),  and Lorcan Tucker (Pembroke) are the ten, six of whom have already earned senior recognition.

George Dockrell (Leinster) and Jack Tector (YMCA) are the two others who have been named in the 50-overs squad.

The Leinster representation could have been even greater, but for the fact that Peter Chase (studies) and David Delany (injury recuperation) were unavailable.

O'Rourke spoke at his pride in the high number of Leinster players included saying: "I would like to congratulate the 12 graduates and members of Cricket Leinster Youth (CLY) selected in the Ireland Wolves squad.

"My advice remains the same; remember you are role models for everyone in CLY, so work hard, play hard and be the cricketers you can be.

"You are always welcome back at any CLY event."

It will be interesting to see who will emerge from the next generation when the youth interprovincials continue this summer.
