Ireland U20: England extract revenge.

, , ,


England extracted revenge, for their two defeats by Ireland this season, by winning this 5th Place Semifinal 23 – 30 in the World Rugby U20 Championship at Club Old Resian, Rosario. 

I don’t often get the chance to sit down and watch these matches as I’m usually away covering this competition, but with Argentina being a touch too far for The FRU coffers, I managed to catch most of the days games as they unfolded. 

I’d enjoyed the match ups of New Zealand v Wales (exciting), Fiji v Georgia (entertaining ) and Australia v Argentina (awesome) as I sat down to watch South Africa v France on the TV and Ireland v England on the desktop. Perhaps I was spoilt by an absolutely fantastic Australian performance, but I found the Ireland v England game a little mundane and it really only sprang to life in the last ten minutes. 

Up until then it was pretty much an arm wrestle, in appalling conditions, with England on top.
