Ireland U-20s’ Clash With New Zealand Live On TG4

Ireland U-20s’ Clash With New Zealand Live On TG4

Irish rugby fans will be able to watch the Ireland Under-20s aim for a third place finish at the IRB Junior World Championship when TG4 broadcast Friday’s play-off against New Zealand live (kick-off 5.05pm local time/6.05am Irish time).

The Irish language station have served up some thrilling Under-20 rugby action this month, providing live coverage of the Ireland U-20s’ three pool matches as well as last Sunday’s semi-final showdown with England.

Whatever the result against the Baby Blacks, Mike Ruddock’s youngsters will claim Ireland’s best ever finish at a Junior World Championship – either third or fourth position.
