A Number Of Irish Players Have Been Made Available To The Provinces This Weekend

Joe Schmidt has released a number of Irish players for provincial duty this weekend.

Ireland have a two-week break before the resumption of their RBS 6 Nations campaign against France at the Aviva, with the Ireland boss omitting some bodies from the three-day camp in Monaghan.

Finlay Bealham, Ultan Dillane, Kieran Marmion and Tiernan O’Halloran have all been made available to play for the Westerners against Newport Gwent Dragons at the Sportsground.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – hosted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy, Ireland international Megan Williams and Olympic sevens star, Greg O'Shea. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

Meanwhile Ulster have been boosted by the returns of the likes of Stuart McCloskey, Luke Marshall, Tommy Bowe and Craig Gilroy- who bagged a hat-trick for his country in Rome, as they prepare to host Glasgow on Saturday.

This no doubt gives us a better of idea of who’ll start against France.
