The Ireland coaching group will reassemble the squad today at the IRFU High Performance Centre at the Sport Ireland Campus in west Dublin as preparations begin for the Guinness Series games in the Autumn Nations Cup.

Five Ulster players have been selected – Billy Burns, Stuart McCloskey and Jacob Stockdale in the backs, and Rob Herring and Iain Henderson in the forwards.

Ireland will play Wales at home on Friday 13th November and then travel to London to play England at Twickenham on Saturday 21st November. The following Sunday, Ireland will host Georgia at the Aviva Stadium and will complete the series of international fixtures on Saturday 5th December against either Fiji, France, Italy or Scotland.

Kieran Marmion and Quinn Roux will be available to Connacht this week and will join the national squad on Sunday. Jack Conan was rehabbing an issue in camp that hasn’t settled so will return to Leinster to continue his rehab programme.

All games will be televised on Channel 4 and RTE.
