The Ireland Under-19 squad to face Australia Schools at Ravenhill on Saturday week (December 14) has been announced.
" I am surprised at the choice of venue but particularly disappointed for Munster supporters. We had asked ERC to consider the logistics from a supporters point of view in the hope that they would opt for a venue that would be easily accessible. That plea has been ignored and I am extremely disappointed for our supporters. From a team point of view getting to Beziers is not a problem. But our supporters face a gruelling and expensive journey. They have made huge sacrifices to support us in the past and that support has been crucial to the progress that the team has made. I hope that as many as possible can make it to Beziers for the match."
The team will be fully prepared for the challenge and it's one we are looking forward to."
