Irish Colleges Take On Scottish Universities

Irish Colleges Take On Scottish Universities

The Irish Colleges side play the Scottish Universities XV on Wednesday at Suttonians Rugby Club. The game, at the JJ McDowell Memorial Grounds, has a 2pm kick-off.

COLLEGES FIXTURE: Wednesday, May 2

Irish Colleges v Scottish Universities, JJ McDowell Memorial Grounds, Suttonians RFC, 2pm

This should be a very competitive fixture with the Universities having been narrowly defeated 28-17 last weekend by the Combined British Services Under-23s in Scotland.

The Irish Colleges gave the Scottish Students a real hiding in Edinburgh last year when they won by 47-0. The Scottish Universities have regrouped this year and are a far stronger outfit, playing a very fast attacking brand of rugby.

The Irish Colleges defeated the Combined Services 34-17 in Dublin, earlier this year. This coming Saturday at Twickenham the Services will be hoping to defeat the English Universities for the second year running.
