Ireland Rugby I XV Age Grade Teams for England Rugby Double Header: Named Here!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2 minutes, 54 seconds Read

The Ireland under-18 club team and Ireland under-19 team have both been named for an away double header against England this weekend.

Both sides played a similar double header in Dublin before Easter against strong French selections and were just beaten in tight encounters.

The under-18 club side lost 19-13 despite outscoring their counterparts two tries to one. There have been changes to the starting team from that game, with out half Fergal Cleary swapping places with centre Sean O’Hagan in a new look midfield. In the forwards Scott Flanagan starts at hooker in place of Paul O’Donnell who is injured, with Shane Byrne coming into the replacements as back up.

The under-19 team streaked into a 15-0 lead in their last outing against France under-19, but lost narrowly 24-15 in the end after a late French rally in the second half. There are also two changes to the starting team from that game, with Robbie Henshaw starting at outside centre in place of Tom Farrell, a try scorer against France under-19. In the forwards, Christopher Taylor starts at tight head prop, with James Dever moving to the replacements.
