Munster's Anthony Foley and Neil Doak from Ulster have been named as the coaching ticket for the O2 Ireland Wolfhounds who take on the England Saxons at Kingsholm on Saturday, January 25, 2014.
O'Connell will not be replaced as there are three other locks in the squad and as expected the Senior squad has been cut to 22 with Tyrone Howe and Mike Mullins moving to the A squad which leaves John Kelly in line for a first cap. The final vacancy in the A squad has been filled by Donnacha O'Callaghan.
Both Ireland Senior and A sides will be announced tomorrow at the Glenview Hotel (12.30pm approx) following an open training session from 11.30-12.10pm approx. at Greystones RFC.
