Ireland U20 have named their side to face England at Donnybrook Stadium in Dublin on Friday night (6pm kick off).
England are chasing a Grand Slam, and much like in the Seniors, Ireland will be looking to stop them.
Speaking ahead of the game to Irish Rugby, Head Coach Nigel Carolan said:
“It was disappointing to come back from Wales without the win last weekend, but unfortunately some things just didn’t work out for us on the night. The players have dusted themselves down from that game and are now looking forward to Friday night’s fixture.”
“England are coming to town with the title in the bag, but the players really want to finish the campaign on a positive note, so we’re confident that we can put in a big performance in front of a home crowd on St. Patrick’s Day.”
