Traditionally the U20s Six Nations Championship is played alongside the Senior Mens and Womens' tournaments in Feb/March each year while the summer months see the Under 20s head to their age-grade World Championship.

However the rugby calendar, like almost everything else, has felt the impact of Covid-19 and this season's U20 Six Nations will kick off this weekend.

Ireland have selected three former Sullivan pupils in their 34 man panel, Conor McKee (Class of 2019), George Saunderson and Harry Sheridan (Class of 2020).

Conor, a scrumhalf, who is studying Mathematics with Finances at Queens University in Belfast plays his rugby for the Universty club. 

George also plays his rugby for Queens and is a studying Sport and Exercise Science at SERC. Having played No.8 during his school career, he now features at loose head prop.  

Harry can play across all back-row positions. He is currently studying Management Science and Information System Studies at Trinity College and plays for Dublin University Rugby Club.

Cardiff's Arms Park will host all the games in this year's Championship, beginning with a triple-header on Saturday 19th June when Ireland will face Scotland at 2pm

Ireland's second match is against the hosts Wales on Friday 25 June and Round 3 sees Ireland face England on 1st July. 

Ireland's Championship concludes with games against Italy (7th July) and France (13th July). 

The Ireland Squad for the opening game against Scotland will be named on Friday (18th June).

 

 

 

 

 

We are very proud of the achievement of our three past pupils and it also testament to the coaching and support received through school.
