Lions ready for Ulster in U-20 decider

LEINSTER bid for the U-20 Interprovincial title at Dubarry Park, Athlone tomorrow (4pm) in a must-win game against an Ulster side who have won all three games so far.

Munster, after a disappointing campaign in which they were thrashed by Leinster and well beaten by Ulster, fight Connacht for third place at the same venue (2pm).

Connacht, however, believe they have a chance. Selector Sean Brennan pointed out: “I think the team progressed and developed with each of our games. I believe we have a chance of producing a surprise result.”

Connacht are also in action at provincial “A” level, taking on Leinster in Barnhall this afternoon.

Munster take on Leinster U-19s at Donnybrook later today, while the Youths side (U-18) meet Leinster at Thomond Park tomorrow (1pm).
