Nine-year-old Drew Davis won a competition to be mascot for the Ireland team through his membership of the Irish Rugby Supporters Club.
He is pictured above before last month's Ireland v Romania autumn international at Lansdowne Road.
Drew and his family are avid rugby fans. Drew plays for Lurgan RFC. Drew's sister Anna, aged 6, plays Tag rugby.
