The first game to be played in the new Aviva Stadium game saw a Leinster/Ulster U20 side crush Munster/Connaught U20 68-0.

The first try ever scored in the Aviva Stadium was from our own Craig Gilroy. Well done to the young man on making a peice of history!

In all 11 Ulster players were on the Leinster / Ulster side. Captain Luke Marshall was outstanding and Craig Gilroy, not to mention Paddy Jackson who chalked up a 100% kicking record for the day.

Well done to the ulster lads on displaying exceptional rugby skills.
