The Connacht Under 19, sponsored by GMIT, matchday squad has been named for Sunday’s 1:30 PM kick off interprovincial clash with Leinster at Energia Park, Donnybrook. 


After a narrow defeat to Ulster last time out, the Westerners will hope to bounce back with a win in their second game of the interprovincial series. 


Nicky Pfeiffer is named at loosehead and will be joined in the front row by Adam Nash at hooker and Jonathan Flynn at tight-head. 


The second row sees Eoin Ryan partner Lorcan Fallon, while the back row contains Gareth Kilkelly at blindside flanker, Adam Hunter at openside, and Fiachra Barrett at number 8. 


Kelvin Langan starts at scrum-half and forms a half-back pairing with Harry West. The centres are captain John Devine at twelve and he is joined by Adam Madden at outside centre. 


The back three, meanwhile, features Blaine Barry and Liam Golden on the wings and Adam O’Carroll at full-back. 


Connacht have named a strong bench of replacements with Dylan Keane, Aaron Burke, Alex Hennigan, Harry Regan, Luke Walsh, Andrew Sherlock, Tadgh Finlay and David Gacquin all featuring.
