The Ireland Under-19 squad to face Australia Schools at Ravenhill on Saturday week (December 14) has been announced.
Ulster continued with this pressure after half-time and with the score at 11-3 looked to be heading towards victory. However the Exiles, using their bench well, started to turn the Ulster defence with raking kicks to the corners. The Exiles clawed their way back into contention with an unconverted try and then five minutes from the end nosed in front with a touchline conversion of their second try to win 13-11.
On Sunday in Dundalk it was a different story with the Exiles dominating most of the game. However they were unable to convert their pressure or territorial advantage into points. A determined Leinster side defended their line for long periods and denied the Exiles any scores. Dundalk had few chances to score but when they did they took it. Scoring an unconverted try to run out victors at 5-0.
The trip was a great experience for the Exiles players. Both games were watched by the Ireland U18 management team and selectors.
