Wilkinson And Fitzgerald Added To Irish Squad

Connacht prop Brett Wilkinson and Leinster’s Luke Fitzgerald have both been added to the Ireland squad that joined up together in Limerick on Monday afternoon ahead of the start of the GUINNESS Series next week.

The uncapped Brett Wilkinson has been added to the squad as cover for Munster prop Marcus Horan who injured his hand last week and has been ruled out of playing for several weeks.

Luke Fitzgerald was not named in the original 34-man squad due to an injury he picked up playing for Leinster, but he has since returned to training and has recovered sufficiently to join the Ireland set-up.
