Head coach Richie Murphy has named his Ireland U20 matchday squad, for Sunday’s World Rugby U20 Championship semi-final against South Africa in Cape Town.
Geesala native Fiachna Barrett, who was impressive when starting against Fiji last time out, is named among the replacements, while Ballina’s Harry West misses out through injury.
Sunday’s match is live on Virgin Media Two in Republic of Ireland and on World Rugby platforms where there is no local broadcaster.
