you are correct. well spotted. My sources have let me down :oops:
http://www.worldrugby.org/u20/match/23970
Unusual that the IRFU haven't posted the team up yet.
Surprised that Ronan Kelleher isn't starting. Diarmuid Barron played in the Ireland under 19 games recently I think. He was added when McElroy dropped out. Big step up for him.
Even without Larmour, O'Brien etc, that backline could do damage.

I have vague recollections of underage teams and squads going up on the world rugby site early and then being different when we announce them ourselves. Not sure why that would be but it's certainly happened in the past.

They could be minding Kelleher, bringing him on for the second half.

Yeah, 5 matches in less than 3 weeks is ridiculous!

I hope they're planning on rotating a bit. The Scotland match might be the only chance.


We might have a weakened squad but there's still a real possibility of qualifying as best runners up if they lose to NZ.


The other groups look more competitive.
England, Australia, Wales, Samoa
Argentina, France, South Africans and Georgia.


The weather will likely be hot and the ground hard so we should see high scoring matches.

Scotland currently giving it a bit of a rattle against New Zealand in our group.

22-13 to New Zealand early in the second half (3 tries vs 2 tries)

First 10 mins, Ireland dominant but made at least 3 handling errors in opposition territory and missed one penalty. Still 0-0.
Jack Kelly playing very well.

Italy try. Disappointing to have all the ball and then sloppiness leads to conceding a score.
