The Connacht U19, sponsored by GMIT, matchday squad for Sunday’s 3:30 PM interprovincial clash against Munster at Dubarry Park, Athlone has been named. 


After a narrow 21-19 defeat to Leinster last weekend, the Westerners will hope to go one better and have named a matchday squad featuring players from nine Connacht clubs.


Nicky Pfeiffer starts at loosehead and will pack down beside hooker Dylan Keane and tight-head Jonathan Flynn.


Eoin Ryan joins Lorcan Fallon in the second row, while the back row features Gareth Kilkelly at blindside flanker, Adam Hunter at openside and Fiachna Barrett at number eight.


Andrew Sherlock and Harry West form the half-back pairing with John Devine, inside centre, and Adam Madden, outside centre, are selected in the centres.


Adam O’Carroll and Blaine Barry are selected as wingers with Tadgh Finlay operating as the full-back.


Adam Nash, Aaron Burke, Alex Hennigan, Harry Regan, Luke Walsh, Kelvin Langan, Liam Golden and David Gacquin form a strong replacements bench.
