The Ireland Under-20s have made three changes to their starting side ahead of Friday's Six Nations visit of Scotland to Donnybrook.

Head Coach Nigel Carolan has made two changes to his pack as prop James Bollard and second-row Sean O'Connor are handed their first starts while fit-again scrum-half Stephen Kerins has also been restored to the side.

Ireland are fourth in the table with two wins from four so far, with Scotland on the same score but holding a 30 points difference advantage over the Irish team.
