Ireland Ease Past Scotland In U20 6 Nations Opener

February 2, 2014

31/01/2014. RBS Under 20 6 Nations. Dubarry Park, Athlone
Ireland 34 – 7 Scotland

After last years 1 point defeat in Galeshiels, Irelands Under 20’s made no mistake this year by inflicting a convincing defeat on their Scottish counterparts on a rain swept Dubarry Park.

Torrential rain and strong winds made for difficult conditions on both sides but Ireland still managed to build up a 27 point winning margin thanks to 4 tries, 2 from man of the match Jack Donaghue and a try apiece from Peadar Timmins and Oisin Heffernan; while Ross Byrne added 2 penalties to 4 successful conversions.

Scotland managed consolation scores in injury time when Ben Vellacott crossed the line and Ben Cooper duly sent the conversion over the bar.
