3 of the 4 backrow players are Ulstermen but none of the backs - how times have changed

Is the full game available anywhere?

Ireland were a little unlucky with the obvious forward pass being missed in the build-up to the second French try, but the experience will stand to them long term.

It was weird hearing Psycho Jr after the game speaking with a Dublin brogue in his blue shirt.

Lost 17-30 to the baby boks. They were leading by 5 points after 50 minutes. Should have been more as they dominated that 50 minutes. Then the boks got on top in the scrums and their subs made a big impact.

Another near miss. It's hard to know what's going wrong for them. Doris has been the standout, but all four half backs have been the opposite.
The team keep going for the whole game, but it's mostly honest toil, rather than skilful creativity for the most part, and yet they could have won all three games with more composure. A mountain of chances have been created only for a poor decision to kill the score.

Is that the players or the coaching?

It's a wee bit generous to call that a near miss. The late try flattered Ireland, who never looked like imposing themselves on Georgia. I wouldn't read too much into it, though. The limited pool available means Ireland will always struggle at age grade - the key is to find a few players each year who can be molded into senior internationals. Doris looks like he could be one, and Sean O'Brien (presumably no relation) another

Due to the Irish Mammy our boys grow up a little slower so are still boys at this age and probably get hot chocolate before bed. James Ryan and Jacob Stockdale probably have to get their mammy's permission to go to Austrilia for the summer.

But when the boys finally become men they are more than capable as shown by the provinces. The under 23 league may help develop players better for this age but currently we are getting enough through each year

I had not foreseen them losing by two clear scores. As you say if they fail to beat the loser from Georgia and Japan they will finish bottom and lose their place for next season.

If Ireland lose to Japan on Sunday, surely McNamara will have to go and leave the way clear for Paul O'Connell?

If they get relegated the IRFU will rip up the current system of developing players as we will be a laughing stock. As people have said we usually win one game which is poor.

To be 12th at u20 losing to Geogia and Japan is unacceptable. And if relegated something needs to be done

Just reading an interview with Dan Brennan (Frence U20s tighthead) where he says that at the age of 16 he was brought into the French Academy in Paris. Every Monday morning he flew to Paris, trained all week and came back on a Friday evening to Toulouse to play a match.

How can Ireland compete with that at U20 level. Its all very soccerish.

He comes across as being a very sound lad - best of luck to him for the final.

The embarrassment might lead to changes. I don't see any sweeping changes though, it'll be more along the lines of getting them more games to prepare.

Surely we can organise an u20 tournament to run from 6N to championship.

If they are serious about having an u23 league that will help. I know it won't happen but would love u20 team for each province in the AIL. I think it would help people to learn better in real situations. Playing in the AIL with say Cork Con as a young winger you might get saved by older players. If it's an u20 team you will be forced to address issues. Also allows the senior management give you thinks to work on and improve.

It also could be a ploy to make other nations thing our underage is rubbish so they don't need to worry about us allowing us to go about our business in peace

Good thinking Brendan. I'll admit that if I were IRFU chief-in-charge-of-everything, I'd use such ploys to keep the hounds of the enemy guessing everything. I'd even demand that we lose one of the games in Australia to ensure we wouldn't be labelled with no 'peaked-too-soon' psychological warfare crapology from our friends and neighbours in Europe Wink

Phew, that was close.

Ireland yet again had the majority of possession and territory but this time just managed to sneak the win. The main reason they found themselves in this predicament was that they weren't playing as a team. Far too often in this JWC they would ignore a numbers overlap in pursuit of individual glory. Can't help but think that Nigel Carolan wouldn't have allowed that to happen as much as it has.

I updated the long term U20 thread.
http://www.606v2.com/t8079-4-years-of-ireland-at-under-20-rugby-at-jrwc


Theres about 13 U20 players per season graduating to top flight club or international level.
