These Young Rugby Stars Are Seriously Committed To The Leaving Cert

These Young Rugby Stars Are Seriously Committed To The Leaving Cert
By Jason Brennan Updated

We found it tough enough to get out of bed to do the Leaving Cert, so we can't imagine trying to sit it while on international duty 18,000km away, in New Zealand.

But this is the task taken on by two of Ireland U-20 rugby stars as they will complete the exams in between their hectic training and fixture list at the Junior World Championship.

Landsdowne and Leinster's Conor McKeon and Young Munster's Diarmaid Dee will sit the exams at the same time as the 58,000 students at home despite the time difference, with coach Hendrik Kruger taking up the mantle of exam superintendent.

The two boys are repeating subjects after completing their exams last year, with Dee taking English at 8.30pm on Wednesday and 11pm on Thursday, while McKeon will retake Maths at 11pm Friday and 8.30pm Monday.
