Shane Williams is doing the announcements on BBC 2 Wales tonight, and he's wooden as anything - and you can't see him.

So, this could be an interesting game - wonder how Mike Ruddock's thinking...

Awh look they're showing the seniors when they were in the U20s. Very Happy

Ireland start well, they drive over to get the penalty. Jackson sends it wide. no score.

Ireland appear to be the dominate side at the moment...a bit of a scary moment for Wales there. Jackson going for another penalty, which bounces off the post luckily for Wales.

0 - 0.

Noticed that Sore. Looks freezing there as well....don't know what would be worse, a damp pitch or a frozen one?

I thik we may have another shoite scottish ref on our hands. What may be worry for both teams is they look petty lightweight compared to what England and France can usually dish out. Of course, this would not be an issue for us had we had our best players available to us, but they must not think our '2nd team' is important.

ooh, very nearly a try for Ireland, but he loses the ball and it goes to touch. Wales have been spending an awful lot of time down the wrong end of the pitch so far! Some good clearance kicks coming from Wales though.

We're unfortunate that jacko has left his kicking boots in Belfast!

This is frustrating. We're outplaying them but have let them off the hook a lot of times. Missed good try scoring chances as well as kicks.

Like just there- not straight five metres from their line. Then a few phases ago, line break into the 22 and the last pass goes to ground. It's no good being the better side until you get within striking distance and screw it up.

Excellent kick from Sam Davies gives Wales a good attacking opportunity, but the Irish lads are strong and clear it away.

Shaun Edwards has clearly been working with the U20s as part of his new role

5% possession and they are in the lead - good defending

Alright Billy, but he's getting caught too often at the base. His backrow could be doing a better job of protecting him mind.

Excellent try by the Irish fullback - a local boy too apparently so the crowd are chuffed. All set up nicely by Hanrahan.

5 - 3. No conversion.

No comparison to the previous U20s when they had Navidi, and before that Warburton.

plus three chargedowns not counting the 4th by the 15 and a few wayward passes were not getting enough posession to waste it like that. Forwards need to adapt to the ref at the breakdown as well.

27 minutes played, Jacksons conversion fell short so its 5-3.

Ireland have been the better side but have knocked-on, miscued lineouts etc. in the 22. They've had most of the possession and territory but need to make it count. Jackson, whilst he has been excellent in open play, has missed 3 from 3.

Hanrahan looks a class above. I can't believe that Munster have signed the donkey Downey to play 12 when they have this guy waiting in the wings. A very, very promising footballing 12.

Wales pinged again and Ireland go for the corner rather than the posts. Could be another good opportunity for them here. They're in possession.

Yeah, very much so. I hope he gets more gametime with Ulster during the Six Nations. He definitely does need to improve off the kicking tee though.

I'd like to see him with Pienaar again in the Pro12 where he doesn't need to worry about place kicking but long term he needs to shape up in that department.

All right Dog Ale there's a lad called Hanrahan for Ireland who's standing out by a mile at the mo. Massive hit on him there.

I think we can be grateful our defence is well drilled. Otherwise, I think we would be down by a lot more than 2 points. Now we have a lineout, please just clear it.

FYI
Scotland U20 3 - England U20 14

Fantastic 2nd try for England. Played it from their own half at the restart for the 1st try, Yarde raced down one wing and passed to the supporting 8 to go under the posts.
