Connacht will take on Munster in the third-fourth place play-off, while Leinster and Ulster are to fight it out for the overall U-20 Interpro crown. After the success of last year’s finals day, it has remained in the midlands – at the home of Buccaneers RFC.

The play-off gets things underway at 2pm, with the overall final to follow at 4pm.

In the event of a draw on Saturday after normal time in the final, 20 minutes of extra-time will be played, 10 minutes a half.

If the teams are still level after extra-time, the winner will be the team that finished higher in the table at the end of the round robin system. No extra-time will be played in the third-fourth play-off match – if the teams are level at the end of normal time, they will finish equal third.
