Injury blow for Ireland U20s

Date published: June 12 2016

Ireland U20 fly-half Bill Johnston suffered a shoulder injury in Saturday's victory over New Zealand in the World Rugby U20s Championships in Manchester.

The injury will rule Johnston out for the remainder of the tournament.

Brett Connon of the Newcastle Falcons has been called into the squad as his replacement.

Ireland's famous win came hours before the senior side recorded a first-ever win over the Springboks in South Africa.
