Ireland U18 Clubs and School beat Canada U19 51-12 on Wednesday on the 4G Pitch at the newly named Energia Park at Donnybrook.


It was the second time in a matter of days that Ireland had passed the half century against Canada, having beaten them 56-17 on Saturday.


In all they scored nine tries, with inside centre Tommy Downes, number 8 Ed Brennan, and left wing and Henley College star Tom Bacon all grabbing two tries each. It was the second time in as many games for the Ireland U18 Clubs and Schools XV that Bacon had scored a brace, having done so on Saturday as well.


Also on the scoresheet were Bacon’s backfield partners Shane Jennings and Jack Hunt, as well as substitute Ben Daly, who also added a conversion to go along with two earlier efforts from scrum half Shane Murphy.


Bacon was joined in the starting fifteen by fellow IQ Rugby (Irish Exiles) man Ciaran Booth, the St Ambrose College flanker, while there were five further English based players on the bench, Millfield’s Oran McNulty, Cranleigh’s Hayden Hyde, Sedbergh’s Michael Cooke, Beechen Cliff’s Chris Moore, and Denstone College’s Joshua Dunne.
