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.
With a number of Leinster players in the Ireland U-20 side and some former Ireland U-20s in the Leinster side, both teams knew each other very well.
Leinster notched up tries from Paul Ryan and Niall Morris. Ian McKinley converted the first try and added a penalty in the first half while Ian Madigan landed the conversion for Morris' try.
Brian Kingston and James McKinney slotted a penalty apiece for the Ireland Under-20s.
