The French outfit will take on the unbeaten Irish after they secured one-point victories in their opening two matches of the Under 20s Six Nations. Lièvremont's side got their campaign back on track after a convincing victory over Scotland having been beaten 59-17 by England in round one.
The squad of 23 also includes No.8 Alexandre Roumat who signed a three-year contract with Bordeaux-Begles, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2020. The 19-year-old is the son of former French international Olivier Roumat who won 61 caps between 1989 and 1996 and has been a regular with Biarritz in Pro D2 this season. He will head to Bordeaux at the end of the season.
