13 players released back to provinces for Six Nations break week


Ireland head coach Andy Farrell has released 13 players back their provinces for Pro14 action, as we head into the Six Nations weekend.

Following Saturday's impressive win against Wales, Ireland travel to face England in their next game on Sunday February 23rd, with 23 man squad retained for a two-day training camp in Cork this week.

Of the 13 players sent back to the provinces for this weekend's Pro 14 action, Leinster's Ronan Kelleher and Max Deegan are the only two who have featured in Ireland's opening two games.

Dave Kearney, Luke McGrath and Will Connors will also rejoin Leinster training.

The others released back are Ultan Dillane and Dave Heffernan of Connacht, Munster pair Chris Farrell and Jack O'Donoghue, and Ulster quartet Billy Burns, Tom O'Toole, Stuart McCloskey and Jack McGrath.

Will Addison is retained in the national training group, despite missing the opening games, while Caelan Doris is also included having suffered a head injury just four minutes into his debut against Scotland 9 days ago.

On Thursday Ireland will host an Open Session in CIT, Cork and train with the Ireland U20s squad, who will also travel to England next week in search of a Triple Crown.
