Ireland Wolfhounds squad named to face England Saxons
A matchday squad of 23 players has been named for the O2 Ireland Wolfhounds as they take on the England Saxons at the Sportsground this Friday (KO, 7.35pm).
Connacht players Robbie Henshaw and David McSharry are two of the possible debutants after having strong seasons for their province.
A further seven players are included in the Wolfhounds squad who are uncapped at full international level, but the group also includes a wealth of experience in the forms of Luke Fitzgerald, Andrew Trimble, Tom Court and Isaac Boss.
Some of the newer faces called up to the Ireland squad – including Iain Henderson, David Kilcoyne and Michael Bent – all have an opportunity to impress this Friday in Galway before the wider training squad prepares for the opening Six Nations match against Wales.
