Four players to watch

An athletic and physically strong line-out operator, Trayers played Senior Cup rugby last year despite only being in fourth year. He has represented the Connacht Schools side at second-row.



An abrasive openside wing-forward who is very quick, Kelly was called up to the Ireland U-19s training squad at the start of the year. An excellent line-out jumper, he has also represented Connacht U-19s and the U-18 Schools side. Kelly will captain this year's Senior Cup team.


An assured full-back who is defensively strong, Carroll has lined out for the Leinster Schools side and is a key player in the backline.


Cruelly ruled out of last season's Cup prior to the semi-final due to illness, Foley has now regained full fitness. The out-half's return is a huge boost to his school.
