Ireland played in 2 matches during December 2018, that formed part of their preparations for the upcoming U-20 Six Nations Championship.
In their first match, the Ireland u/20's produced a high-quality second half performance to claim a 38-17 win over a Leinster Development XV at Energia Park today. The score was even at 12-12 at half time but the Irish side kicked on during the closing half to run out 38-17.
In their second warm-up game against a Munster Development team, they won 24-20 in a close game at the Irish Independent Park. John Hodnett and Michael Milne scored their second tries of the Ireland Under-20s' festive schedule.
Irish Independent Park will host the u/20 Six Nations tournament opener against England on Friday, February 1 2019.
