Chay Mullins named in Ireland U20 squad for Six Nations

Academy back three player, Chay Mullins has been named in the Ireland U20 squad for the forthcoming Six Nations campaign.

Head Coach Murphy, and his Assistant CoachesDenis Leamy and Colm Tucker, are excited about the strength in depth and overall dynamic of this year’s group having had to make a number of difficult selection decisions following a series of squad camps at the IRFU High Performance Centre in recent weeks.

Ireland kick off the Six Nations against Scotland on Saturday week, before facing hosts Wales in Round 2 on Friday, 25 June (Kick-off 8pm).

Murphy’s side will then go head-to-head with England on Thursday, July 1st (8pm KO) and their Championship will conclude with ties against Italy on Wednesday, 7th July (Kick-off 2pm) and France on Thursday, 13th July (4.45pm KO).

Commenting on his squad selection, Murphy said: “We have been working hard for a number of weeks and it’s an exciting time for these young players, who have the honour of representing the wider group in Cardiff.

“It has been a challenging year but the players have come in, worked hard and bonded well, and I have been impressed by their work-rate, commitment and application. Now our focus turns to performance and Saturday’s opening game against Scotland, which we know will be a big challenge first up.

“We are looking forward to the opportunities over the coming weeks and are excited by the prospect of an Ireland U20s team returning to Six Nations action.”
