Glenstal’s Healy in Ireland U-19 squad
Munster Schools Senior Cup winning captain Ben Healy has been named in the Ireland U-19 squad to take on France in the first of two fixtures at the Sportsground, Galway, this evening (5pm).
Glenstal Abbey’s Healy is named in the replacements alongside PBC skipper Billy Scannell, younger brother of internationals Niall and Rory.
Three Munster players have been named in the back division, James Mccarthy (UL Bohemian) at full back, Conor Philips (Crescent College Comprehensive) on the right wing and PBC playmaker Sean French in the centre.
Ballymena RFC’S Azur Allison will captain the side from No.8 and is joined in the backrow by Scott Penny and Luke Clohessy, from Limerick - no relation to former international Peter.
The second fixture will take in the Sportsground on Saturday (2.30) when squad rotation can be expected.
