Limerick native Dan Goggin is hopeful that Ireland can finish their U-20 Six Nations campaign with victory over France in Tarbes.

Mike Ruddock's side got back to winning ways when they defeated Italy 18-0 at the weekend.

"We created a lot of chances and showed we can make the breaks. The thing now is to finish off those chances," said the former St Munchin's College player.

This is his first year in the Ireland U-20 side and, having missed out on the matchday squads at U-18 and U-19 levels, he is thrilled to get the opportunity to impress.

He started out with UL Bohs but moved to Young Munster this season and has featured in the AIL.

"When I was younger I was in the forwards, but then I moved to No 12, then the wing and then back to 13 and I'm going to stick with No 13," said the UL student.

He has never played in France before and is looking forward to this evening's clash in the Pyrenees.

"It has been a class experience and we are all battling for places for the Junior World Cup in New Zealand in June," added Goggin.
