Joe Schmidt has named 3 uncapped players in his squad for the Six Nations.

Munster trio Andrew Conway as well Niall and Rory Scannell will join up with the squad for the first time.

The Ireland Head Coach commented, "It has been good to watch the players over the past two months and great to see many of them doing so well.

As always there were some difficult decisions but we feel that the group is a good mix with a number of key players having good experience and a number of newer players having gained valuable experience and confidence during the summer tour to South Africa and the recent Guinness Series."

Ireland begin their campaign against Scotland at Murrayfield on the 5th February, before making the trip to Rome to face Italy a week later.
