Ireland U-20s Fall Just Short Against France

The Ireland Under-20s, sponsored by PwC, were unable to finish their U-20 Six Nations campaign with a final flourish, as a powerful French outfit emerged as 34-28 winners of an entertaining clash.

Tries from Jamie Osborne and captain Alex Kendellen had helped Richie Murphy’s side exchange blows with France throughout a fascinating first half at Cardiff Arms Park.

However, les Bleuets flexed their considerable muscle in the second period to claim a hard-fought victory despite a late Ireland salvo.

Overall, it was a hugely positive Championship for Murphy’s side, who finish with three wins over Scotland, Wales and Italy.

Take a look at some of the best action shots from this evening’s encounter:
