Irelands U20s suffer blow as Jack O'Sullivan ruled out of World Championships

The Ireland squad for next week's World Under-20 Championships has undergone some alteration.

Garryowen's Jack Daly replaces Jack O'Sullivan after the latter suffered a knee injury.

While a knee complaint has also ruled out prop Tom O'Toole, and his place in the squad goes to UCC's Bryan O'Connor.

Ireland begin their Pool C campaign against hosts France in Perpignan next Wednesday.
