The Irish under-20 side claimed their second successive one point win after beating Italy 27-26 on Friday night.

They followed up last weekend's dramatic win over Scotland with a similar display of calmness and assurdness as the home side scored a late try to set up a tense finale only for the boys in green to hold on.

Ireland led 6-3 at the break but tries from Jordan Lamour (x2) and Tommy O'Brien after half time were just enough to secure the victory.
