The Ireland Under-19 squad to face Australia Schools at Ravenhill on Saturday week (December 14) has been announced.
From 24th to 26th September, the annual U18 pilgrimage' to Ireland takes place - this year, to the West. On Friday 24th, we play Connacht at the Galway Corinthians ground, kick-off 7.30 p.m. On Sunday 26th, we play Munster in Limerick at Thomond Park, kick-off 12.30 p.m. A few of last season's squad are still eligible but we were also blessed with a best ever' emergence of talent from the Screening Camp; hence, the tour is eagerly awaited by all concerned. The diversity of the squad is such that we have players from as far apart as Bath, Harrogate, and Liverpool, not to mention the usual complement from London and the South-East of England.
Arrangements for further fixtures (already agreed) will be posted in due course.
