Munster Star Called Up To Irish Training Camp Ahead Of Wales Game

Back in green.

Munster hooker Niall Scannell trained with Ireland this afternoon in Athlone, and is the only new face in Joe Schmidt’s camp.

Scannell recently made his return for Munster after a difficult period with injuries. The hooker missed the November series with a thumb injury, before injuring his ribs in the Champions Cup.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

The men in green trained today and yesterday in the midlands, with an open session held for the fans at Bucaneers RFC this morning.

James Ryan, Iain Henderson and Tadhg Furlong did not train with the team today, but are expected to train next Tuesday. All three should be fit in time for the clash with Wales.

Garry Ringrose (ankle) and Sean O’Brien (hip) continue to rehab at Leinster. As of now it looks unlikely they will be available for the Wales game.
