There are six uncapped players in the Ireland squad for the summer tour to North America that was named this morning. An Emerging Ireland squad has also been selected for the Tblisi Cup in Georgia.
"I know I`ll be giving someone else a chance but plenty of other players are in that position and now I`ve got the opportunity to have a good off-season so I can start the World Cup year fully fit," Latham said.
He will be replaced in the tour squad by New South Wales winger Scott Staniforth.
