Ireland Head Coach Joe Schmidt has named his squad for the Summer Tour to USA & Japan and has included the uncapped Rory Scannell as one of nine Munster players in a 31-man travelling party.

A nailed on starter with the province for the best part of two seasons and a former Ireland U20 and Emerging Ireland representative, Scannell has been a key figure in Munster’s resurgent Champions Cup and PRO12 campaigns of late and was included in this season’s PRO12 Dream Team alongside fellow tourist Dave Kilcoyne.

Joining Scannell on the Tour will be his older brother Niall, who, along with Andrew Conway, Jack O’Donoghue and John Ryan, will look to make further inroads on the international scene having all made their Irish debuts this season.

Tommy O’Donnell, Keith Earls and Simon Zebo complete the Munster representation.

Meanwhile, former Munster stalwart and current Racing 92 Assistant Coach Ronan O’Gara will accompany the team for the New Jersey leg of the tour with Munster Technical Coach Felix Jones working with the side for the final week of the tour in Tokyo.
