Ireland Issue Positive Squad Update Ahead Of Scotland Clash

Looking good.

Ireland have issued a positive squad update ahead of their crucial round four Six Nations clash with Scotland on Saturday.

Ultan Dillane is the only player not currently in camp as he travels back from South Africa following Connacht’s Guinness PRO14 game against the Cheetahs. He will join the group on Wednesday.

Rob Herring re-joins the squad having resolved an elbow issue sustained playing for Ulster against Edinburgh. Niall Scannell suffered a recurrence of a rib injury playing for Munster against Glasgow but is expected to be fit next week.

Andrew Conway is continuing his return from a knee injury at Munster but is expected to be available for selection next week. Leinster’s Barry Daly joins the squad.

Tadgh Furlong and Iain Henderson continued their rehab last week and are expected to train fully this week.
