Thank’s to Bob Given digging out some of his old pictures we have new coverage of the The IRB 2007 U19 Rugby World Championship held in Northern Ireland between the 4th and 21st April 2007.
The Tournament was split into two divisions of twelve teams. Division A games took place in Belfast at Belfast Harlequins’ Deramore Park, Ulster Rugby’s Ravenhill Stadium, and Cooke RFC/Instonians’ Shaw’s Bridge complex. Division B games were held in Queen’s University of Belfast’s The Dub complex and Malone RFC’s Gibson Park in Belfast, and Bangor RFC’s Upritchard Park in Bangor.
The Ireland U19 team taking part featured seven Ulster players in Matthew Nelson (Ballynahinch), Paul Karayianis (RBAI/Queens), Stephen Douglas (Ballymena), Adam Craig (Instonians), Harry McAleese (Ballynahinch RFC), Jamie Smith (Ballymena) and Tommy Seymour (Down High School).
