Young wing Jordan Larmour has earned a first Test call-up after he was named in Ireland’s Six Nations squad.
The 20-year-old has been an impressive performer for Leinster, and joins a strong 36-man squad, which also includes Chris Farrell and Bundee Aki, who won their first Test caps at the end of last year.
However, Ireland are missing several players through injury, including the likes of Sean O’Brien, Garry Ringrose, Jared Payne and Jamie Heaslip.
‘There were some very tight decisions, but it’s great to see some competitive depth in a number of positions,’ coach Joe Schmidt commented.
Ireland squad – Rory Best, Jack Conan, Sean Cronin, Ultan Dillane, Tadhg Furlong, Cian Healy, Iain Henderson, Rob Herring, Dave Kilcoyne, Dan Leavy, Jack McGrath, Jordi Murphy, Peter O’Mahony, Andrew Porter, Quinn Roux, James Ryan, John Ryan, CJ Stander, Devin Toner, Josh van der Flier, Bundee Aki, Joey Carbery, Andrew Conway, Keith Earls, Chris Farrell, Robbie Henshaw, Rob Kearney, Ian Keatley, Jordan Larmour, Kieran Marmion, Fergus McFadden, Luke McGrath, Conor Murray, Johnny Sexton, Rory Scannell, Jacob Stockdale.
