Ulster centre Luke Marshall is a player to watch in the RaboDirect Pro12 over the 2013/14 campaign.
The 22-year-old enjoyed a great start to the year as former Ireland head coach Declan Kidney handed the Ulster man his international debut during the Six Nations.
Marshall impressed, particularly in the 12-8 loss to Scotland before featuring against France and Italy. He capped an impressive season when he picked up the 2012-13 Celtic League Young Player of the Year award at the end of the campaign.
However, he's endured a difficult period since as he suffered a concussion in the Heineken Cup quarter-final loss to Saracens. He was forced to miss Ireland's tour of North America as he spent four months on the side lines.
Marshall is still to find his feet again after a less than convincing performance in a 13-12 loss to Glasgow Warriors on Saturday, but expect the centre to bounce back.
He's got bags of talent and boasts an excellent temperament despite his tender years.
Mark Anscombe said of Marshall: "Luke is a fine player. We saw that last year when he played in three Ireland Tests. He's a good young prospect who will get better."
Marshall was included in Joe Schmidt's Ireland squad for next week's training camp and seeing how he develops both at club and international level over the coming season makes him one to watch.
