Ireland U20 Squad Announced for 2016 RBS 6 Nations fixtures

We have the Ireland U20 rugby squad for the 2016 RBS Six Nations Championship fixtures, the side is managed by Nigel Carolan.
The 30 man squad features four players from last year’s campaign – Jacob Stockdale and Adam McBurney from Ulster, Andrew Porter of Leinster and Conan O’Donnell of Connacht. Leinster and Lansdowne second-row James Ryan will captain the team.

On selection of the squad, Carolan said:

“While we have just the four players returning from last season, we have been really impressed with the attitude and enthusiasm that the new guys have brought with them into the squad.

We’ve had a number of camps with this group of players, as well as two warm up games against Leinster and Munster before Christmas, so now we are just looking forward to getting the championship started against Wales”

Speaking in advance of the 2016 Under-20 Six NationsDavid McGeeMarkets Partner, PwC, said PwC remains very committed to supporting Irish Rugby including our sponsorship of the Under 20 team and we wish them every success for 2016 and in their upcoming Six Nations Championship campaign.  This sponsorship is very close to PwC’s DNA as developing a leadership pipeline with attributes such as talent, teamwork and commitment are critical for success in business and on the pitch

Ireland will play all three of their home games against Wales, Italy and Scotland on Friday nights in Donnybrook Stadium this season. The series will again be sponsored by Electric Ireland.

Tickets for the game are available from Ticketmaster at
