Irish U20s Named For New Zealand

The Irish U20s play their final Pool B game on Thursday against New Zealand U20s at 6.45pm in Vannes.

Rory Scannell starts in the centre with Ryan Murphy and Darren Sweetnam named in the replacements.

Head Coach Mike Ruddock said “This is a big game for both sides, the winner of this will have a guaranteed place in the semi-finals. We have a huge respect for New Zealand rugby and particularly their record at this age grade level, but once the whistle goes on Thursday we will be as competitive as we can be to progress to the next round.”

The game kicks off at 5.45pm Irish time and will be televised on TG4.
