Welsh Schools Prepare For Battle With Ireland

Welsh Schools will be hoping to end their season in style tomorrow when they face Irish Schools at Ravenhill.
The senior squad have enjoyed a run of five consecutive wins and will be hoping to add another to this impressive record.
The team have recorded wins against Welsh Youth, Belgium, Holland, France and England.
Even their defeats have seen them produce impressive performances particularly against the might of New Zealand and Australia.
The side to travel to Ireland shows three changes to the team that beat England two weeks ago.
Strade’s Mark Davies replaces Llanhari’s Simon Cole, who is out through injury, at scrum-half.
Flanker Jonathan Edwards reclaims captaincy duties following his appearances in the recent Junior World Cup while Ryan Price switches to No 8 in the place of Adam Whitney who drops to the bench.
