2 minutes, 5 seconds Read

There have been several enforced changes to the Ireland senior and the O2 Ireland Wolfhounds squads.

Paddy McAllister sustained a knee injury while playing for the Ulster Ravens team in the British & Irish Cup and has been replaced in the Senior squad by Leinster loose head prop Jack McGrath.

Munster wing Simon Zebo will move up to play for the Wolfhounds as Luke Fitzgerald has failed to recover sufficiently from injury to either be considered for the game against the England Saxons or for the Ireland training camp. Ulster wing Craig Gilroy has been called into the senior squad to replace Zebo.

Andrew Conway, who was also due to train with the senior squad in Limerick as one of the six additional players, has had to pull out due to injury, with his club mate Fionn Carr replacing him in the senior squad.
