Ireland's defeat in the final of the U20 World Championship brought an end to an otherwise sparkling tournament and now four players have been included in the tournament's team of the championship.

Andrew Porter, Adam McBurney, James Ryan and Max Deegan all make the cut in the forwards, with no Irish player making it into the backs.

Deegan, who had already scooped the player of the tournament award, was one of the stand-out players in the Irish squad and takes his place at number eight, flagged either side by English duo George Nott and Will Evans.
