Ireland U20s team named for Scotland Clash
11th July 2022 By The Editor
Head Coach Richie Murphy has announced the Ireland U20 team for Tuesday’s U20 Six Nations Summer Series match against Scotland at the Stadio Di Monigo (kick-off 11am Irish time, live on the Six Nations YouTube channel).
Following on from last week’s thrilling Pool win over England, Ireland face Scotland in their final outing of the tournament in tomorrow’s Play-Off fixture in Treviso.
Murphy has made four changes to his starting XV, with UCC winger George Coomber, scrum-half Andrew O’Mahony, hooker Josh Hanlon and second row Charlie Irvine coming into the side.
Munster Academy full-back Patrick Campbell starts alongside Coomber and Aitzol King in the Ireland back three, with in-coming Munster Academy centre Fionn Gibbons and Daniel Hawkshaw continuing in midfield.
Sam Prendergast, who kicked the winning points against England, is joined by O’Mahony in the half-backs.
In the pack, Hanlon comes into the front row alongside George Hadden and Scott Wilson, with Irvine selected in the engine room beside Adam McNamee. The Ireland back row of Diarmuid Mangan, captain Reuben Crothers and Lorcan McLoughlin remains unchanged.
The match is live on the Six Nations YouTube channel at 11am.
