The Ireland 20’s Have Just Pulled Off Something Magical


Ireland have never defeated New Zealand but the same can’t be said for the 20s side.

The U20’s side have just defeated the Baby Blacks 33-24 in a thrilling encounter at The Academy Stadium in Manchester. Nigel Carolan’s men came into today’s clash following a brilliant opening win over Grand Slam champions Wales.

The three-try victory over New Zealand U20 all but guarantees Ireland’s place in the semi-final. Tries from Adam McBurney, Max Deegan and Greg Jones were enough to see Ireland over the line against the Baby Blacks.

A fantastic day for Irish rugby, now it’s the senior side’s turn as they take on South Africa at 4pm.
