Ireland Autumn Internationals Squad 2022

Ireland head coach Andy Farrell has named a 37-strong squad for the Autumn Internationals fixtures against South Africa, Fiji and Australia.

The squad features six uncapped players: Calvin Nash, Jimmy OBrien and Ciaran Frawley in the back-line and Jeremy Loughman, Joe McCarthy and Cian Prendergast up front.

Nash, McCarthy, Prendergast and Ulster wing Robert Baloucoune are selected having played on the recent Emerging Ireland tour of South Africa.

Jacob Stockdale could win his first cap since the summer of 2021, while Stuart McCloskey, a late addition to the Ireland squad that conquered New Zealand in the summer, has also been named following the suspension of Bundee Aki. Aki was banned for eight games after a reckless ruck clear-out and is not available for the Tests against the Springboks and Fiji.

Hugo Keenan is included despite being sidelined this season with abdominal and knee injuries. But James Lowe, Iain Henderson, Keith Earls, Rónan Kelleher, Jordan Larmour and Andrew Conway all miss out as they continue their rehabilitation from injuries.

Johnny Sexton will continue as captain.

There is also an Ireland A fixture scheduled for the RDS on Friday 4 November against a New Zealand All Blacks XV, for which Farrell has named an additional 12 players.

Ireland will play two home World Cup warm-ups next summer against Italy on 5 August and England on 19 August, both at Aviva Stadium.
