    Ireland U19

    Ireland U19 v France U19, Queen's University Belfast, KO 14.00 (BST)

    Does anyone know of stream that might be available to watch this game? I'm over in England and my nephew may be playing. Many thanks in advance.

    Sadly, whilst the Six Nations streamed the U18s game there is no link for the U19s.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,743 ✭✭✭Lost Ormond

    No stream so highlights will probably be best you will get unless someone records game and puts it up later

    A slightly under the radar result from the weekend

    Munster u18 clubs 19-10 Ulster u18 clubs

  • Registered Users Posts: 810 ✭✭✭Hey boy

  • Registered Users Posts: 882 ✭✭✭Lsdrugbyfan

  • Registered Users Posts: 882 ✭✭✭Lsdrugbyfan

    finished 46-26 at half time to ireland.

    some impressive backs on display, could have been wider margin if a few forwards passed.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,094 ✭✭✭Dubinusa

    The u18's have some decent talent. There's a lot for the coaching staff to be pleased with. I was impressed with Murphy. He was better than Naughton, imo.

    The captain , Berman looked really good and the fullback. In the forwards, Sparrow and both 2nd rows were quite good and the 8 was exceptionally powerful and agile.

    Solomon from Ulster is one to watch. He gets around the pitch and looks to have a bright future. I thought that the pack was a little undersized. But they really put in a big effort. France did get on top of them in the 1st match. There was a noticeable difference in size up front.

    All in all, there is a lot to look forward to in this group.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,094 ✭✭✭Dubinusa

    Leinster development side beaten well by the clubs and schools squad. I was surprised as I thought Leinster would have played better.

    Spicer looked good from the highlights. Could be some prospect.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,858 ✭✭✭realhorrorshow

    The lack of Connacht representation across the various underage teams is pretty disappointing, especially after the extremely strong group born in 2001, which has already contributed 4 senior players. Is the talent simply not there? There would usually be a decent contingent in the clubs and schools side at least.

  • Registered Users Posts: 92 ✭✭LRind2008

    Any team sheets for that game?

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,743 ✭✭✭Lost Ormond

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,743 ✭✭✭Lost Ormond

    Most competitions finished at this stage. Leinster had cup finals days in Donnybrook over recent weekends. Connacht same in Sportsground.

    Munster provincial competitions over a month or so and its been regional leagues and cups being finished up over last few weeks. Interestingly all bar 2 of the 11 Munster under 16 and 18 competitions this season were won by Cork clubs
