Cork football legend Tony Davis believes the GAA would be better served focusing on schools than development squads.

Development squads have become all the rage in recent years, but after watching the Irish U20 rugby team win back-to-back Grand Slams last Sunday, Davis feels a strong post primary schools’ structure is key to producing top-quality players and improving playing standards.

The former Sunday Game pundit tweeted: “The key to producing top players in all sports is a strong schools system. Brilliant victory for the Irish 20’s another example. Maybe GAA could invest more in the schools system to maintain top quality competition. I believe it beats development squads to a certain level.”
