A single point separated the sides as a hard-fought 5th-8th place play-off finished in France's favour at Stade Henri Desgrange on Tuesday night. Check out some photos from Ireland's fourth IRB Junior World Championsip match.
The news on Keith Wood still remains unclear. He did take a part in training yesterday but has still not been declared a certain starter. Frank Sheahan remains on standby as cover in the event that the Irish captain is ruled out. Shane Byrne will take over from Wood with Sheahan on the bench.
