The Ireland squad reassembled last night ahead of Sunday’s Guinness Six Nations Round 4 clash away to Scotland at BT Murrayfield (Kick-off 3pm).

37 players will commence preparations to face Gregor Townsend‘s Scotland side, who have beaten England and Wales to date in this year’s Championship.

Gavin Coombes, Jack Crowley, Rob Herring, Jordan Larmour, Cian Prendergast, Roman Salanoa, Jacob Stockdale and Kieran Treadwell return having featured for their provinces in the URC at the weekend.


Nick Timoney and Ciaran Frawley are included in the squad for the first time during this Championship campaign. Timoney started the game against Fiji in November while Frawley picked up an injury playing for Ireland ‘A’ against the All Blacks XV on the eve of the Autumn Nations Series.

Jamie Osborne and Scott Penny, who trained with the squad ahead of Round 3, are unavailable having picked up minor knocks playing for Leinster against Edinburgh at the weekend.
