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.

Ulster have a three-point lead at the top of Pool 4 heading into round 6 of the Heineken Cup. They face a daunting trip to chief rivals Clermont Auvergne on Saturday afternoon.
The clash will be Ulster's 100th game in the Heineken Cup and they head to France knowing they require at least a draw (or a losing bonus point whilst denying Clermont Auvergne a try-scoring bonus point) to finish as pool winners.
