Prop called up for Ireland U19s squad to face France


Academy prop Jake Caulfield is set to represent Ireland U19s against France U19s on Thursday at (2pm KO).

The prop, who is dual-registered with Clifton RFC, will play in a double header at St Mary’s RFC in Dublin, as Ireland U18 Clubs take on France as a curtain raiser to the U19s fixture.

Informed of his call-up last week, Caulfield says he is relishing the opportunity to pull on the green jersey.

“I’ve been with the Ireland squad in a training camp since Monday,” said the 19 year-old. “I was delighted when I was invited over and obviously very proud.

“I recently spent some time with the Ireland U20s set-up and that’s proved to be really helpful in my development.

“Hopefully I will be involved and have an opportunity to show the coaches and my teammates what I can do.”
