Buccaneers player named in Ireland rugby side

Rory Moloney of Buccaneers ... named in the Ireland U20 team for this Friday night's Six Nations clash against Italy.


BUCCANEERS player Rory Moloney has been named in the Ireland U20 side to face Italy in Friday’s RBS U20 Six Nations Championships clash at Dubarry Park, Athlone (7pm, live coverage on RTE).

Ireland head coach Mike Ruddock has been forced to replace captain Dan Leavy ahead of the penultimate game of the Six Nations, as the flanker has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament with a shoulder injury.
 
Leavy is replaced in the side by Buccaneers’ Rory Moloney and Sean O’Brien takes over the captain’s role. There are two changes on the bench with Stephen Gardiner replacing Joe Joyce and Frankie Taggart moving to the bench in place of Michael Trigg. Jack O’Donoghue is declared fit to reclaim the No. 8 jersey.
 
Mike Ruddock commented: “The end result against England did not reflect the effort and endeavour shown by this Irish side at Franklins Garden. We must take our chances when they come along and although we did well to draw with Italy last year, we would be confident that at Dubarry Park we can get the desired result.”
