Ireland will play in their first World Rugby U20 Championship Final this Saturday when they take on hosts England in Manchester.

High-scoring wins over Argentina and South Africa respectively set up an all-Northern Hemisphere final, with England looking to win their third title in four years.

Meanwhile the Fifth-Place Final will see New Zealand take on Australia, while Georgia and France are through to the Ninth-Place Final.

Italy and Japan will meet in the crucial 11th-Place play-off to avoid relegation from the tournament.
