Enjoy our photographic coverage of the 2016 World Rugby Under 20 Championship in Manchester. Thier second place finish made this their most successful tournament to date for Ireland U20’s. Note – in some cases there are two galleries for the one match, this is because we had a couple of photographers over.

In recognition of the performances from the Irish youngsters we’ve included their tournament stats below the Photo Gallery.
