Daly And O’Connor Called Up To Ireland U20 Squad

Garryowen's Jack Daly has been added to the Ireland U20 squad ahead of the World Rugby U20 Championship INPHO/Ryan Byrne

The Ireland U20 Management can confirm two changes to the squad to travel to the World Rugby U20 Championships in France this weekend.

UCC back-row Jack O’Sullivan suffered a knee injury at training last week and he is replaced by Garryowen’s Jack Daly.

Prop Tom O’Toole also suffered a knee injury, while playing with Ulster at the weekend and he will be replaced by UCC’s Bryan O’Connor.

Castleisland native Daly has worn the green jersey at U18 Clubs and Schools, while O’Connor lined out for the Ireland U19s last season.

Both players featured regularly for their clubs this season in the All Ireland League.

Ireland travel to France on Saturday, with their opening game against the hosts taking place on Wednesday in Perpignan at 8.30pm (Irish time).

They will then face South Africa (Sun 3rd June) and Georgia (Thursday 7th June) in their other Pool C fixtures.

Eir Sport will broadcast the games.
