Ireland U20 Squad For Junior World Championship Named

The Ireland U20 Squad, which will compete in the Junior World Championship in South Africa, has been named.
Four Munster players have been included in the 28 man squad which have been drawn in Pool B alongside England, Italy and the hosts South Africa.

JJ Hanrahan (UL Bohemians RFC) and flanker Shane Buckley (Garryowen FC) have both retained their places having featured in the 2011 Junior World Championship. While James Rael (Garryowen FC) and Niall Scannell (Dolphin RFC) have also been called up.

Ireland under-20 Head Coach Mike Ruddock said, "We are coming into the IRB Junior World Championship on the back of a relatively successful Six Nations having won four out of five of our matches. This gives us some confidence going into the tournament. However, we are in an extremely physical group. We have hosts South Africa up first, followed by the 6 Nations champions England and then the ever improving Italians. It will require a massive effort from our part to overcome such physical size and power but we intend to give it our best shot."
