Highlights: Ireland Under-20s v England Under-20s

Ireland clinched the Under-20s Grand Slam in a chaotic and feisty affair at Musgrave Park with a 36-24 victory over England.

England arrived in Cork with faint hopes of snatching the title away from their hosts but were severely hampered after Monty Bradbury was shown a red card for a dangerous tackle in the second half.

Ireland initially made the most of their numerical advantage, stretching their lead to 21 points entering the final 10 minutes of the game but England found a second wind to cut the gap to just a score with three minutes to play.

Ireland then rallied, dotting down for their sixth to seal victory and back-to-back Grand Slams in front of a jubilant home crowd.
