Ireland Name 46-Man Squad for the Six Nations

The Ireland team celebrate winning the RBS 6 Nations Championship in the dressing room 15/3/2014

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt has named a 46-man squad for the upcoming 2015 RBS Six Nations and additional Wolfhounds fixture.

Schmidt has named uncapped duo Jack Conan and Nathan White as they prepare for their opening fixture away to Italy on 7th February.

Injury has ruled Robin Copeland, David Kilcoyne, Luke Marshall, Donnacha Ryan and Andrew Trimble out of the initial exchanges of the Six Nations, whilst Chris Henry, Paddy Jackson, Stuart Olding and Damien Valley are on the long-term injured list.

Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt explained: “The coaching group have tried to strike a balance between some players getting the chance to fully complete their rehabilitation programmes, or get a bit of rest and others getting the opportunity to push their claims with further game time in the Wolfhounds fixture.”
