Uncapped duo Mack Hansen and Mike Lowry have been named in Ireland’s Six Nations squad.
Australian-born Hansen qualifies through a Corkonian mother, and his inclusion comes off the back of a string of impressive performances for Connacht.
Lowry is in impeccable form for Ulster, and was man of the match in last week’s Champions Cup win at Northampton.
James Lowe misses out due to a muscle injury, but Joey Carbery is included despite carrying an elbow injury.
There’s no room for either of Leinster’s Byrne brothers, but Jack Carty earns a recall.
Wicklow's Josh Van Der Flier is among the forwards picked for the tournament.
