QUIZ: Can you identify the Irish U20 year?

Does all recent history blend together for you, or were you with these boys every step of the way?

FEBRUARY IS ALMOST here and that means it’s Six Nations time. Another generation of young Irish hopefuls will take the field on Friday night in Cork aiming to impress. But before you get familiar with the 2019 vintage, how well do you remember the stars of U20 Six Nations past?

You might recognise this rather intense, driven back row (and his scrum-half to this day), but can you name the year?
