The Ireland squad reassembled at Carton House yesterday evening, with two new faces in Joe Schmidt’s squad ahead of their Six Nations clash with Wales.
Following an injury to Luke McGrath in Leinster’s win over Scarlets on Saturday afternoon, Ulster’s John Cooney has been brought in to train with the squad.
Centre Garry Ringrose has also been drafted in to replace the injured Robbie Henshaw. Ringrose has been back in full training with Leinster since last week, and there’s still a chance he could be thrown straight back into the Test arena this weekend.
Niall Scannell, who partook in the 48hr training camp in Athlone, will again train with the squad following an elbow injury to Rob Herring in Ulster’s game against Edinburgh.
Tadgh Furlong, Iain Henderson and James Ryan are progressing well through their respective rehab programmes.
