2016 U20 WRC: Teams up for Ireland v England Final

Teams are up for Saturday’s 2016 World Rugby U20 Championship Final between Ireland and England that takes place at the AJ Bell Stadium, Salford. Kick off 19:00, live on Sky Sports/TG4.

Unsurprisingly there are no changes for Ireland after their successful semi-final win against Argentina and from what I can see there aren’t any changes from the English side that beat South Africa.

Not much else to say really, Ireland just need to keep on doing what they have been doing, strong scrums, good breakdown, sharp defence, destructive mauls, fast hands and take their points. Anything beyond that is outside of their control, but it should be enough. 

The FRU Predicts: England to take an early lead but I expect Ireland to win this by a margin of 8 – 12 points after a dominant second half.
