3 uncapped players named in Ireland Squad for 6 Nations

Ireland have included three uncapped players in their squad for the opening two rounds of the Six Nations.


The 38-man squad includes uncapped Connacht trio of Caolin Blade, Jack Carty and Tom Farrell.

Ireland Head Coach Joe Schmidt commented, "It's been great to watch the provincial teams doing so well in recent weeks. With another very competitive round of EPCR this weekend, the following Ireland squad for the first two matches of the Six Nations has been selected, knowing that late changes may be required, depending on how the matches go in the weekend. There have been a number of tight calls across almost every position."

Ireland host England on the opening weekend of the 2019 Six Nations before heading to Murrayfield to face Scotland.
