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.
Six Exiles were on the squad as follows: Joe MacManus (2) (London Irish), Charlie Armstrong (4) (Penzance), and Elliott O'Brien (10) (London Wasps) all started, while Matt Keville (fly-half/centre) (London Wasps), Seamus McKimm (No.8/lock) (RGS High Wycombe) and Sean Dougall (Newcastle Falcons) (flanker) all came off the bench in the second half.
We wish them all well in their ambitions towards a possible Ireland U18 Clubs' place, all six of them having been on the Exiles' U18 teams that played Connacht and Munster last August - the first step towards the above goal.
