The Leinster U18 Schools team to face Northampton Saints in a friendly today, Friday, 9 August (KO 1pm), has now been named.

The game will be played at Army Stadium in Aldershot.

Andy Skehan’s side will be hoping to build some momentum as they get ready to start their Interprovincial Championship next weekend.

The game also provides an opportunity for players to stake a claim for one of the starting berths for that interpro opener against Ulster in UL next week.
