Ireland U18 Clubs And Schools Squad Named To Face Italy
29th March 2023 By The Editor
Ireland U18’s Clubs & Schools squad, sponsored by Pwc, will play an Italy U18s side on the 2nd April at Ashbourne RFC, kicking off at 2.00pm.
Back in November, head coach Fiach O’Loughlin’s (Munster Rugby) side ran out impressive 43-10 winners over their Italian counterparts at the Centro di Preparazione Olimpica Giulio Onesti in Rome.
O’Loughlin will be assisted on the coaching front by Daryl Maxwell (Ulster Rugby) and Morgan Codyre (Connacht Rugby).
There are only six players remaining in the squad from the side that travelled to Rome last autumn – Cian Brady, Connor Fahy, Eoghan Smyth, Henry Walker, Ambrose Bamber and Arann Pratt. Bamber, Fahy and Pratt were all try-scorers that day.
