McNamara has identified a number of issues arising from the performance against England and will be keen to eradicate them. Ireland were completely outplayed at the breakdown, particularly in the first half and it cost them turnovers and penalties. Australian captain Fraser McReight was exceptionally good in this facet of the game against Italy. Those glitches are eminently fixable and should be weighed against the huge positives in the victory over England. The Irish scrum was noticeably effective against a bigger, heavier and more experienced England pack.

The multi-skilled back has played in the key position before at his club and Beechen Cliff School but has tended to operate in the wider channels coming through the Red Rose age groups. The team ended their opening match of the tournament with only 14 men after replacement hooker Alfie Barbeary was sent off for dangerous play.
Connor Doherty is named at outside centre while wing Arron Reed and full-back Josh Hodge also come into the side. Fraser Dingwall will again be captain as he switches to inside centre.
A dozen teams are contesting the World Championship in three pools. Only the winners of each pool are guaranteed qualification to the semi-finals with the best runner-up.
England need to beat Italy U20 and Australia U20, who they play next Wednesday, to have any chance of making it into the knock-out stages.
They have reached the last six finals; winning three and losing three. I want to see the players put in a performance that they are proud of and for everyone to contribute.
