About the Exiles

Irish Exiles

Would you like to play rugby for Ireland?

Did you know that a future in Irish Rugby could be yours? If you are based in England, Scotland or Wales, and are Irish qualified, why not follow in the footsteps of British & Irish Lions Simon Easterby and Rob Henderson?

The Exiles provides an opportunity to follow another path so if your parents or grandparents were born in Ireland you could play rugby for Ireland. Contact the Exiles to find out how!

The Exiles Branch

The purpose of the Exiles Branch is to identify and develop potential Irish professional players in England, Scotland and Wales.

To achieve this purpose the Branch has an organisation, drawn from former Irish Internationals, British & Irish Lions, and others, who carry out coaching, administrative and medical roles on a voluntary basis. This volunteer body is supported by a professional development manager Mark Blair. There are also opportunities for people to support the volunteer body in a variety of roles. Contact the Exiles to find out how!
