Ireland's Under-20 have defeated France 22-5 in tonight’s Under-20 Six Nations clash at Dubarry Park.

Ireland led 15-5 at half-time thanks to the dependable boot of Tom Daly and an impressive workmanlike performance from all XV. Ireland then built on that in the second half to secure their third straight win over France.

Daly hit five penalties inside the first 30 minutes, while France managed a try from hooker Romain Ruffenach after 11.

France were indisciplined throughout and had three players sin binned in all – Florian Vialelle in the first, and Baptiste Serin and Gaël Fickou in the second.

Ireland capped an impressive performance and put the game to bed with a try in the 65th minute from flanker Conor Joyce.
