The Irish U-20 management are sweating on injury updates on three players in the aftermath of their 26-24 loss to France in the opening game of the World Rugby U-20 Championship.

It is feared that the tournament could be over for loosehead prop James French and debutant winger Dan Hurley, while lock Matthew Dalton is doubtful for Sunday's clash against South Africa.

French twisted a knee in the warm-up in Perpignan, while Hurley also suffered a knee injury in the first half. Both players went for scans yesterday but it is feared that they might be ruled out of the remainder of the tournament. Head coach Noel McNamara is also waiting a medical report on lock Dalton who suffered a shoulder injury in the loss.

South Africa were pushed all the way by Georgia before winning their opening game 33-27 and McNamara knows this will be another searching test for his squad.

"It may present an opportunity for somebody else and that's what it is about really. It is an opportunity for these young men to come out here and show what they can do. And we would certainly feel that a lot of them did that against France," he said.
