Editor's Viewpoint: Gilroy's star rising

Life doesn't get much better for Craig Gilroy than it is at the moment.

Dating Miss Northern Ireland and called into Ireland's Six Nations rugby team this weekend means the young man is living his dream. He is the most exciting talent to emerge in recent times and if he continues to develop could become a real superstar.

Yet there is also disappointment that Craig is only joined by one other Ulster team-mate in the Irish side. Ulster has been one of the best teams in Europe this season and surely deserved a greater international representation. Admittedly two of Ulster's stars are injured but others can feel decidedly unlucky not to be pulling on the green jersey on Saturday afternoon.
