Funny how Ireland are a better team than Wales at senior level, when at U20 level they are as bad/average if not more so than Wales.

Is it perhaps, dare I say it, coaching?

But our 7's have done really well this week and that Jordan Conroy is some player, with pace to burn.

Our age grade seems behind the game, I agree.

Ireland looked on par with France and only lost out to SA because of their fitness in the last 30, based on what I’ve seen I’d back them to beat Wales if they were to play in the 5th to 8th place round.

And also I feel the IRFU really shoot themselves in the foot by not picking out of school, so many players I the next U20 side that would add so much to this side who aren’t included guys like Scott Penny,Sean French,David Hawkshaw, to name just a few that would add a huge amount to this team. It nearly feels like the IRFU’s focus is 100% on long term success rather than being good at U20s level as regularly our U20 side’s look like headless chickens but once they turn 22-24 they look on par with any players who played for England, France etc. also worth noting Ireland have a huge injury list of players that would have huge impact on these results but based on IRFU’s view it’s probably not a bad thing.

It would be great if in future if needed the U20s could some players still in school, I’m regularly seeing 17 year olds playing and it’s crazy when you consider we are lucky to even have an 18 year old playing and even that is at a stretch.
