Ireland got their 2019 U20 World Championships campaign off to a fantastic start in Santa Fe on Tuesday evening as they overcame England 42-26 in their Pool B opener.
It was an excellent performance from Noel McNamara’s side who backed up their Six Nations Grand Slam heroics with an accomplished display against a very good England team who have players with Gallagher Premiership experience.
There was no shortage of standout performances from the men in green as they now look forward to their second pool match against Australia who opened their campaign with a one-sided win over Italy.
To add more spice to the fixture, Louth man Michael McDonald looks set to start for the Junior Wallabies against the country of his birth.
But before that, let’s take a look back at some of the highlights from last night’s win.
