Ulster U20’s get their Interpro campaign off to a start this Friday night in Cork. KO. 7:00pm. I’d thought long and hard about going down and covering this game as I believe that this bunch of youngsters are going to be pretty special in the years to come but unfortunately my schedule for Saturday and Sunday just didn’t allow it.
I’m pleased to see that Ulster U20 coaches Jonny Bell and Derek Suffern included three of our “Four to Follow” in the starting line up with David McGuigan, Ian Henderson and Paddy Jackson all retaining their places. Unfortunately Craig Gilroy will be out for a few more weeks and interestingly the coaches have moved Chris Colvin to the wing with Stewart McIlwaine starting alongside Luke Marshall in the centre.
It’s a tight enough looking pack with a pacy back row who should do plenty of damage. The backs look very exciting, and with the classy Jackson at out half linking . . .
