Unbeaten Ireland U20 name side to face England

Ireland U20 have named their side to face England U20 on Friday evening in what will be a key clash in the U20 6 Nations.

Ireland are the only unbeaten side left in the U20 competition, while England sit alongside Scotland, Wales, and France with one win each. Italy remain without a win.

The game takes place at Donnybrook Stadium in Dublin at 19.05 on Friday evening.

Speaking ahead of the game, Ireland U20 Head Coach Nigel Carolan said:

“We are in a good place mid tournament with two wins from two. While the display against France was very pleasing, the English side will bring a huge amount of physicality with them, so we know the challenge we face.”

“If we can match them in the physical department, we hope to reproduce a similar performance like we did two weeks ago. The squad have worked very hard in training and are relishing the opportunity to play on a fast pitch at Donnybrook in front of a vocal home crowd.”
