Six Nations: Ireland Squad Update

A 37 man squad has been named ahead of Ireland’s Six Nations game against France in Aviva Stadium on Sunday.


The squad reconvened at their Carton House base in Maynooth on Monday night following last week’s mini camp in Belfast, which also included an open training session at Queen’s University..

Ross Byrne, who was capped on the summer tour to Australia is named in the squad which also sees the return of Connacht scrumhalf Kieran Marmion.

Up front Rob Herring is included as one of three hookers alongside skipper Rory Best and Munster’s Niall Scannell as Sean Cronin leaves the squad.

Robbie Henshaw has withdrawn from the squad due to injury while Dan Leavy is still absent.
