Burke Back in U20s Squad
3 March 2009, 9:32 pm
Munster Rugby Academy Player Andrew Burke returns to the Irish U20s side this weekend against Scotland after missing out on the previous games against Italy and England due to injury.
The Ireland Under 20 team (Sponsored by PricewaterhouseCoopers) to play Scotland U20 in the Six Nations Championship this Friday 14th March at 7.30pm in McDiarmid Park, Perth, shows no changes to the starting XV from their last outing against England.

Coach Allen Clarke has retained the same run out side for the first time in the championship, but has made two changes to the replacements. Prop Adam Macklin comes into the match 22 in place of Jack O'Connell.

Out half Andrew Burke, who started the first game of the Championship against France, has returned from injury and comes onto the bench joining fellow Academy player and Garryowen man Conor Murray.

Ireland Coach Allen Clarke said "The win against England was a reflection of the strength of the squad's character and resolve. However, there were particular aspects of our game we were not content with and these have received special attention this week".

"Scotland has shown they are a team to be reckoned with and respected, particularly at home. We are aware of the competitive challenge ahead and the levels of performance required. Our aim is clear - to keep progressing and improving as individuals and ultimately as a team".
