Ireland U20 boss rings the changes
10 Feb 2016 12:12
Ireland Under-20 head coach Nigel Carolan has made several changes to the team that will take on France in their U20 Six Nations clash in Narbonne on Friday.
Carolan has shaken things up after his side's defeat to Wales in Donnybrook last Friday night. In the backs, UCD's Hugo Keenan, who started on the wing last week moves to full-back in place of the injured Jack Power. Conor O'Brien (Clontarf), who won his first cap from the bench last week will start on the wing and St.Mary's and Ireland Sevens player Terry Kennedy will look to win his first U20s cap from the bench. Up front, prop Conor Kenny (Buccaneers) takes the place of Sligo's Conán O'Donnell, who moves to the replacements.
Cork Con's Dan Walsh, who will win his first U20s cap, comes straight into the back-row for the injured Will Connors.
Carolan is hoping that his side can put correct the mistakes made against Wales and wants more from his side on Friday. "We were disappointed with how things went against Wales," he said. "I thought that we played well overall but mistakes proved costly in the end. We've hopefully addressed the key areas and we'll be looking for an improved performance on Friday night.
"Our training sessions this week have been very positive and the players are looking forward to the game in Narbonne. If we can maximise on our opportunities, I'd be confident of a result against the French.”
