Ulster's Iain Henderson crosses the line for Ireland's last try of the 2011 JWC.

It was a disappointing end for Ireland U20’s as they slumped to a 24 – 38 defeat to Wales in their final match of the 2011 Junior World Cup.

Ireland did have something to celebrate with Andrew Conway crossing the line for his 10th try in the championship which now puts him joint top try scorer alongside New Zealand’s Zac Guildford.

Ulster’s Craig Gilroy scored late in the first half to keep Ireland in the hunt at the break and an early Jackson penalty after the re-start took Ireland to within 4 points of the Welsh.

Unfortunately too many mistakes from the Irish lads let Wales run away with the game until Ulster’s Iain Henderson scored a late consolation try.
