    It happened, and I was there.
    4.48pm, Saturday 20th May 2006.

      How come it's under-20's this year and it was U-21's last year? Was there some IRB-mandated change or did the cut off date of birth change???

        From the IRFU site "With the change in the age grade structure this season by the IRB from Under-21 to Under-20, Friday's game will mark the international debut of the Ireland Under-20 team"

              So why are some teams still allowed have their u-21's in there if its mandated?

                      It's on BBC Wales not S4C which is the Welsh language channel so it will be English and not Welsh.

                          Wales coach Dai Rees is confident he has a powerful squad for Friday's clash at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea.

                          Smith is one of 11 Welsh players in the side who have had Magners League, EDF Energy Cup or Heineken Cup action.

                          "As most of these players were part of the highly
                          successful Wales Under-19 side last season they have high standards to
                          maintain," Rees said.
                          </font>


                          "The players have set themselves a target of achieving another Six Nations Grand Slam.
                          </font>


                          "It's a realistic goal given the quality of the squad,
                          but a tough one considering we have away fixtures against the two
                          countries who are still fielding Under-21 sides - Italy and France.

                            How many "son ofs" are there in that Ireland team? I count at least three in Fitzgerald, Earls and Anderson, any others?
