    Four in the team, seven in the squad. Not bad.

          Full U19 match Vs Australia. Australia won 17 - 5.

          Strange match. Ireland with all the possession but Australia were much more clinical. It was a closer match than the scoreline suggests


          It was ruined by windy conditions and that suited Australia (imo) who were the bigger side.


          There were some good individual performances from Ireland. The front row were very good. Scrums and lineouts were excellent overall except when the sub tighthead Winnett came on.


          Kelly in the second row had a good game and Deely was lively when he came on apart from one or two handling errors.


          Openside, Booth, was excellent and won numerous penalties at the breakdown. Big No 8, McCann was also very good. Best Ulster back row prospect I've seen in a while.


          None of the backs stood out but it was a hard day to be a back.


          It was a bad tempered match with both teams screeching in each others' faces when the other side made a mistake.

            Might he have been drafted in as having performed well in the Inter-Pros, and being the best Loose Head available? He played pretty well in the game (http://www.irishrugby.ie/rugby/fixtu...ults/42856.php), but you’ll have to ask him about his great great grandfather and what he did with all your potatoes - he suffered along with many others in Sligo I believe: does that narrative not suit your perjorative assumptions and casual racism?

                              Had to dip in & out of the game, but from what I saw I thought we came back strongly after having fallen well behind, taking full advantage of a sinbinning for the French 12 (IIRC). Could even have nicked it in the end but France were ultimately that bit stronger and more accurate.
                              Tis but a scratch.

                                Did well to come back but will agree French were stronger/more accurate. Not surprising as is so often case at this grade.
                                England up next for this 18s side
