Ten Players Added To Training Squad

Ten players have been added to Ireland’s Six Nations training squad this week ahead of Saturday’s clash with Scotland (Murrayfield, kick-off 1.30pm). Meanwhile, scrum half Isaac Boss is to undergo a scan on the shoulder he injured in Ulster’s Magners League defeat to Llanelli at the weekend.

Following the injury he suffered against Llanelli, Boss will undergo a scan on his shoulder this morning. Wasps scrum half Eoin Reddan has been added to the Irish squad as precautionary cover.

The squad will go through their paces at a training session in Bray today and tomorrow before coach Eddie O’Sullivan confirms the starting team and replacements for the Scotland game.
