Ireland Under-20 manager Richie Murphy made nine changes (live on Kickoff, RT2 at 2pm) during Wednesday’s Six Nations match against Italy at Cardiff Arms Park.
Murphy manages his assets for Ireland’s fourth game of the 2021 Championship in Cardiff, with captain Alex Kendellan returning to the open side.
As Kemdallon made his way to the seventh jersey, it was as if the great Munster Pacro Daniel O’Keefe had tried in the opposite direction to return from defeat against Ireland. ‘While England are covered by Alex Zorroka, his first start of the season in eighth place is preparing for victory.
There are three other changes in the group, with George Sanderson and Eoin de Butoulier selected at the front, with Mark Morrissey returning to second place with Harry Sheridan.
In the first win against Scotland, James Humphries has recovered from a facial injury and Nathan Dock remains in the number nine shirt.
There is a new look for Ireland’s midfield with the Ulster duo of Jude Postlet White and Ben Carson appearing from the bench during the first three rounds.
Leinster’s Jamie Osborne marks the third full-time start of the league, with Connor Rank and Sai Mulins called up for the match against Assyria.
Murphy is eager to get their chance on Wednesday night: “We had to knock ourselves out after last week’s disappointment and the team’s focus was great as they tried to turn against Italy.
“It was a busy schedule, but it provided opportunities for the players and there were a lot of boys who worked very hard to get their picks this week. We can’t wait to see them perform in the green jersey. “
