With Mike Ross out of Ireland’s opening two games of the Six Nations with a hamstring injury and Marty Moore ruled out for the duration of the tournament, Joe Schmidt has decided to call up a replacement prop.
Connacht prop Finlay Bealham has been added to the Ireland squad for the Six Nations. The 24-year-old, who can play at either loosehead or tighthead, was born in Australia but qualifies for Ireland through his grandmother who is from Enniskillen.
Bealham first arrived in Ireland in 2010 and has represented Ireland at U20 level and at the Junior World Championships. Bealham is the fifth uncapped player in the squad along with Ultan Dillane, Josh van der Flier, Stuart McCloskey and CJ Stander.
