    13. Liam Turner (Dublin University/Leinster)
    12. Stewart Moore (Malone/Ulster)

    5. Ryan Baird (Dublin University/Leinster)
    6. David McCann (Banbridge/Ulster)
    7. Ronan Watters (St. Mary’s College/Leinster)
    8. John Hodnett (UCC/Munster)

    Replacements:
    16. John McKee (Old Belvedere/Leinster)

    There are two enforced changes from the squad that beat England in the opening game. Sean French, who came on in the second half, sustained a facial injury that rules him out of the rest of the tournament. Iwan Hughes, who was making his tournament debut, picked up a finger injury and he too is ruled out of the tournament.

    Aaron O’Sullivan(UCD/Leinster/U20) and Max O’Reilly(DUFC/Leinster/U19) have been called up to the squad in place of Sean French and Iwan Hughes but will not be in the side this weekend.

          Surprised Healy didn’t hold onto the 10 jersey- but great for Munster to have the starting and back up 10. Real pity for Sean French.

            so Munster have 1st choice and 2 choice 10. Is there a Leinster ( or other) player injured?

              They might like to have the two Shannon lads playing together?
              "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

              Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                Yes the 1st choice 10, Harry Byrne is missing the tournament due to an injury.

                  Yes. Harry Byrne, younger brother of Ross. He started the first three games in the 6N but picked up an injury before the France game. Still injured.

                      Certainly looked it through the 1st three games pre-injury.

                              Surprising. That Aus team hammered the Baby Blacks 24-0 not long ago.

                              From the highlights I saw they look like they have a seriously powerful scrum. Strong defence too.

                                Yep, seems strange, maybe reflecting small amounts of money - and it coming from Ireland.


                                Are Ireland any/much weaker from injuries from the England game?
