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.

Topic 1 - 'How to develop speed in our players'
Presenter: Des Ryan (IRFU fitness education manager)
Topic 2 - 'Introducing Olympic lifting as a training tool'
Presenter: Sami Dowling (Leinster Rugby NTP fitness coach)
Topic 3 - Leinster Rugby Academy, 'Strategies used to physically develop rugby union players'
