The Irish Rugby Supporters Club is delighted to announce that tickets for the GUINNESS Series 2013 will go on sale on ticketmaster.ie at 10am on Thursday, May 30.
With concerns over Malcolm O'Kelly's knee injury as well as slight calf strains for both Frankie Sheehan and Rory Best, there are three hookers included in the squad as well as four second rows.
O'Sullivan said: "Malcolm's knee injury is still a concern for us and we have allowed some more time for it to respond further to treatment. Both Rory (Best) and Frankie (Sheehan) are carrying slight calf strains, so we have named three hookers to give us some back-up in that area."
The starting XV and replacements for the Welsh encounter will be named next Wednesday (January 31) at 12.45pm.
