Casey Ruled Out As Ireland U20s Team Named For Scotland Clash

Casey Ruled Out As Ireland U20s Team Named For Scotland Clash

The Ireland U20s team has been named ahead of their U20's Six Nations clash against Scotland, with scrum half Craig Casey ruled out through injury.

Casey was one of the standout performers in the heroic win over England last week, with his crisp passing incredibly impressive. He was involved in a heavy clash with one of the English players late on in that game, which has ultimately ruled him out of Friday's match.

He will be replaced by Leinster's Cormac Foley, who will be aiming to form an effective partnership with provincial teammate Harry Byrne. The team is otherwise unchanged, and coach Noel McNamara will be hoping to push on after the unlikely victory over tournament favourites England.
