Three Dundalk RFC players named in Leinster Junior squad for Interprovincial Series
Three Dundalk RFC players have been named in the Leinster Rugby squad for this year’s Junior Interprovincial Series which kicks off on Saturday April 27th at Skibbereen RFC.
Sean Arrowsmith, Robert Farrell and Jonathan Gray have all been included in the squad having also featured in last year’s success which saw the province pip Ulster to the title.
They will be hoping to repeat that feat on home soil with the final game scheduled for Dundalk next month.
Leinster play Munster in the opening game in Skibbereen on April 27th before facing Connacht in Wicklow RFC on Saturday May 4th.
The final match will take place at the Dundalk RFC grounds at the Mill Road against Ulster on May 11th.
Kick-off for each game is at 2.30pm.
Before the series gets underway, the Leinster Junior squad travel to Somerset this weekend, where they will play a friendly against Somerset County.
