Breaking: Played Added To Ireland Squad For Summer Tour

Ireland have announced that Connacht lock Quinn Roux has been added to the squad that will travel to the USA and Japan for the June Tests.

The 26-year-old made his debut for Ireland on the June Tour to South Africa last year, starting in the second Test against the Springboks.

The 32-man squad will fly to New Jersey on June 5 ahead of their opening Test against the USA Eagles before flying to Japan for two Tests.

A second-row was always expected to be called up with Schmidt only naming three in his initial squad. But the addition of Roux has come as a a bit of a surprise with his teammate Ultan Dillane expected to be the one called up.
