Ireland U20’s scraped home for an uninspiring 19 – 13 win against their Italian counterparts at Donnybrook on Friday night. Ireland’s points came from a Shane Daly try with Brett Connon adding the conversion and four penalties. 

Having bigged up the Under 20’s over the last few weeks I have to say this was easily their worst performance of the series. The first half was a scrappy affair as they struggled to find any continuity, a big disappointment having had expectations raised after their comeback against England. 

The Italians started the game full of intent keeping Ireland pinned in their own half for the bulk . . .
