11 Connacht players selected on underage Irish squads
A total of 11 Connacht players have been selected for the upcoming Irish Under 19s and Under 18s internationals.

The U19s take on France today at the University of Limerick at 5pm - the game was originally fixed for the Sportsground before it was moved due to the adverse weather conditions. Prop Ryan Lomas, hooker Dylan Tierney, backrow Neal Moylett, scrum-half Colm Reilly and back three Hugh Lane were all named in the squad, as was Cian Huxford who unfortunately injured his ankle and is likely to miss the remaining games.

The Under 19s take on France again this Saturday at the Sportsground with a 2.30pm kick-off.

Turning to the Under 18s where out-half Dylan Prendergast has been named in the schools squad, while in the clubs & schools squad there were four Connacht players chosen. They are tight head Liam Winnet, second row Darragh Murray, and centres Saul O'Carroll and Shane Jennings. Second row Iarlaith Laheen is among the standby list.
