The Ireland Under-19 squad to face Australia Schools at Ravenhill on Saturday week (December 14) has been announced.
Brian O'Meara replaces Brian O'Riordan at scrum-half with the latter dropping to the bench while recent signing Ricky Nebbett will be given every chance to prove his fitness ahead of the Ulster clash.
Should Nebbett fail to recover from the foot injury sustained while walking barefoot last week, his place on the substitutes bench will again go to Arklow prop Anthony O'Donnell.
Leo Cullen again captains the side.
