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.
Meanwhile, tickets for Connacht's first home derby match of the season against Leinster are selling fast.
The match, which is expected to be sold-out come match time, has traditionally been an attractive fixture in the Magners League and Interpro calendars with demand for tickets high.
Over the past few weeks tickets have been selling well from Ticketmaster and from the Connacht Branch offices but supporters are encouraged to buy their tickets early.
