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.
This Sunday, Waterloo meet Nottingham Casuals in the semi-finals with a place in next month's Twickenham showpiece at stake, with Neary aiming to become the first women's player raised in Ireland to take the field at the famous home of English rugby.

Back in September, she was a member of the first ever Ulster women's team to play at Ravenhill and, last month, was in the Ireland side for the first ever women's international at Thomond Park.
