2010-11 International Rugby U20 IRB Junior World Championship Ireland U20

JWC 2011: Ireland 24 Wales 38

It was a disappointing end for Ireland U20’s as they slumped to a 24 – 38 defeat to Wales in their final match of the 2011 Junior World Cup.

Wales were always in front with Lewis Robling, Macauley Cook, Liam Williams, Kirby Hill, and Thomas Young all crossing, Matthew Morgan adding two conversions and three penalties.

Ireland did have something to celebrate with Andrew Conway crossing the line for his 10th try in the championship which now puts him joint top try scorer alongside New Zealand’s Zac Guildford.

Leinster’s Andrew Boyle scored late in the first half to keep Ireland in the hunt at the break and a Patrick Jackson penalty shortly after the restart took Ireland to within 4 points of the Welsh.

Unfortunately too many mistakes from the Irish lads let Wales run away with the game, with two second half tries, until Ulster’s Iain Henderson scored a late consolation try.
