Watch: Ireland U20 Dealt Hammer Blow As Scotland Turn On The Style In Georgia

Ireland's U20 World Championships look destined to end in disappointment as they lost their second group game to Scotland in Georgia on Sunday morning.

Having been dealt a very tough draw it was always going to be a big ask, but after losing to Italy in the opening game Ireland knew a win was needed against the Scots, but sadly they came up just short with the final score being 32-28.

Despite an excellent solo score from Leinster's Jack Kelly, it was Scotland who submitted a contender for try of the tournament with an incredible sweeping move from deep in their own 22 in the first half.

Ireland's final group game comes on Saturday as they face a New Zealand side that has managed to score 110 points in the two games against sides that beat Ireland...

Should the Irish pull off a miraculous win, it would still likely not be enough to ensure their progression to the next round, but hopefully they have give a good account of themselves after what will have been a disappointing time in Georgia.

For Scotland, that win came one day after their U20 football team managed a 1-0 win over Brazil U20 at the Toulon tournament, their first win over Brazil in football at any level.
