Ulster Bank Club International Training Squad Named

The Ulster Bank Club International coaching team of Paul Cunningham and Killian Keane have named an extended training squad of 32 players from 15 different clubs in advance of the two Club international fixtures.

The Ireland Club XV will play their Scottish counterparts at Old Anniesland in Glasgow on Friday, February 6 before lining out at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, February 14 as part of a unique double header against the French alongside the RBS 6 Nations senior international match.

The extended squad will assemble at Naas Rugby Club this weekend for a one-day camp. The squad will then be reduced for further training camps in January and February ahead of the matchday squads being announced.
Last season the Ireland Club XV recorded two impressive victories, defeating the Scottish Clubs 28-3 at Temple Hill and England Counties away 23-22.
