Lock included in 23-man squad

Joe Joyce has retained his place in Ireland U20s' 23-man squad ahead of the RBS Six Nations clash with Wales U20s at Dubarry Park on Friday (7.35pm KO).

Head Coach Mike Ruddock has opted for continuity in making just one change from the side that beat Scotland.

"We got off to a good start in difficult conditions against the Scots but Wales will provide a much sterner test,” said Ruddock.

“An unchanged side gives us some consistency and will allow combinations to develop across the field."
