Ireland vs Wales U-20 Preview


Ireland are favourites at home with a handicap of 21 points. I fancy the visitors who produced a decent performance against a strong England side last time out.

Head to Head


Last season Ireland beat Wales 44-27 away in the U-20 Six Nations.

Ireland U-20 Form


After the first two rounds, Ireland are second on the U-20 Six Nations table with two wins from their two matches. They are on nine points, one off England who are currently top.

Ireland were very strong in the opening round as they beat France 37-31 away from home. Last time out their performance was not as smooth, but they still came away with a 23-22 win at home over Italy.

I expect Ireland to revert back to a similar side that featured on the opening weekend. Some changes against Italy just didn’t work for them.

Wales U-20 Form


Wales are fourth in the U-20 Six Nations after the first two rounds. They have won one and lost one of their two games.

Round one saw Wales defeat Scotland 37-29 on home soil. It was a patchy performance from the Welsh, but it was enough to get over the line. Last week, while they competed well, England dominated much of the match as they won 28-7 against Wales.

Wales U-20 Injuries & Team News


Wales will be pleased with their two performances to date. I expect a similar side with perhaps two or three changes.

Verdict

I am backing Wales to get within 21 points against Ireland in the U-20 Six Nations.
