Letterkenny’s Joe Dunleavy has been named to start for the Ireland Under-20s team in the Under-20 Six Nations on Friday night.
Ireland take on Scotland at Donnybrook and Dunleavy has been included in the back row alongside Matthew Agnew and Jack O’Sullivan for his first cap.
Dunleavy played with Letterkenny Rugby Club and now lines out with Malone and Ulster.
“It’s set to be another good challenge for the players on Friday,” Head Coach Noel McNamara said.
“Everyone was disappointed with the result against Wales, so it’s an opportunity to finish our time in Donnybrook on a positive note
“We’ve made some changes for Friday night and I know the management team are looking forward to seeing those players go out and show what they can do.
“Scotland come to Dublin off the back of a good win over England, so they will be full of confidence. The games between ourselves and Scotland have been close affairs over the last few seasons, so we’re expecting another tough encounter this week.”
In total, Ireland show seven personnel and one positional change for the game.Tags:
