Queen's Rugby - Under 20 Six Nations tournament

9/03/2018

Queens + Ireland Crest

live coverage on RTE2 from 7pm - Ireland v Scotland from Donnybrook.

Tonight the Ireland U20's take on Scotland in the U20's version of the 6 Nations at Donnybrook, and they will feature a trio of Queen's University players. Angus Curtis and Mark Keane both start with Under 20's veteran Jonny Stewart taking his spot on the bench .

 

Curtis will wear the No. 12 shirt after an impressive try-scoring performance against Wales two weekends ago. In his first year studying management, Curtis hails from a strong rugby pedigree with both his father and grandfather representing Ireland at Senior level. 

 

Keane wins his 1st Under 20's Six Nations cap after winning two caps in last year's U20 World Championship. Keane, a School's Cup winner with RBAI, is studying Engineering and has been a regular on the wing for Queen's this year. 

 

Stewart, having started and scoring against both France and Wales already in this championship, is rested and will take his place on the bench. A stalwart of U20's rugby, Stewart has 12 U20's caps to his name making him the most experienced member of the Irish squad. In addition to representing his country at age grade level, Stewart earned his first Ulster Senior cap this season against Leinster, all whilst studying Law. 

 

The 3 spearhead a large Ulster contingent within the squad and we from Queen's Sport wish them the best of luck.

For those looking to watch the match it is available on RTE 2 from 7:00 tonight.
