TEN players from Limerick clubs have been named on the Ireland under 20 side that will play New Zealand this Thursday, kick-off 12.30 Irish time.
Starting will be Alan Tynan and Gavin Coombes from Young Munster, David McCarthy and Liam Coombes of Garryowen, Conor Fitzgerald, John Foley and Adam Moloney of Shannon and Joey Conway of UL Bohemian. On bench will be Fineen Wycherley of Young Munster and Jack Stafford of Shannon. The Ireland U20s side is sponsored by PwC and former Bruff and Garryowen back-row Peter Malone is head coach.
According to Malone it has been a difficult opening to the tournament for the team: “We have a young side and while everyone is disappointed that the results haven’t gone our way so far, the players will have gained a lot from those two games.”
The match will be broadcast live by Eir Sport, and it will be available to watch via www.worldrugby.org in certain countries.
