Two Munster Rugby players released from Ireland camp

THE Ireland squad has reassembled in Carton House to begin preparation for Saturday's summer Test against the USA at the Aviva Stadium.

Three players have been released from Ireland camp, including the Munster Rugby duo of centre Chris Farrell (HIA), who will be managed by the medical team at Munster, and flanker Peter O’Mahony, who will now commence his off season.

Ireland play the USA this coming Saturday in the final fixture of the Vodafone Summer Series at 7.15pm. The game will be televised by RTE and Channel 4 is the third fixture between the two sides in the past four years.

Ireland have won the last two games between the sides 55-19 in New Jersey in 2017 and 57-14 in the Aviva Stadium in 2018. There is also the added spice of the return fixture between the two teams in Las Vegas in the autumn.
