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.
Rory Best has been ruled out of Ireland's clashes with South Africa, Fiji and Argentina due to a neck injury he sustained last Friday playing in Ulster's league encounter with the Dragons.
Following a scan and medical review, it was confirmed that Best has sprained ligaments in his neck which will require a rest and rehabilitation period of between 4-6 weeks before a further assessment of the injury.
