Ireland U20s Team Named To Face Munster Development
30th December 2021 By The Editor
The Ireland U20s Match Day squad, sponsored by PwC, has been named for today’s Challenge Match against Munster Development at Musgrave Park (Kick-off 2.30pm).
Richie Murphy’s extended squad assembled in Cork earlier this week for their second training camp and Thursday’s hit-out against Munster is another important building block ahead of the U20 Six Nations, which gets underway on 4 February.
Ulster back row Reuben Crothers will once again captain Ireland, having led the side against Italy in an uncapped Challenge Match at the UCD Bowl before Christmas.
Three players who made their Champions Cup debuts for Munster this month have been included in the Ireland U20s side for today’s clash against the Munster Development team at Musgrave Park. Greencore Munster Rugby Academy duo Ethan Coughlan and Patrick Campbell both start alongside Young Munster’s Conor Moloney.
Supporter information for the match is as follows:
Cash only entry – Adult €10; Children/OAP €5.
