Ireland Squad Named For Six Nations Clash With Italy

Italian Job.

A 34-man squad has been named by the Ireland coaching group for round 3 of the Guinness Six Nations Championship. Ireland travel to Rome to play Italy in Stadio Olimpico on Sunday, February 24.

Chris Farrell has been reviewed by the Ireland medical team and is fit to train today. Garry Ringrose and Rhys Ruddock will continue their respective hamstring rehab at Leinster this week.

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.
