Ten Munster players have been named in Ireland's 36-man squad for upcoming 6 Nations Championship.

Andrew Conway, Keith Earls, Chris Farrell, Ian Keatley, Dave Kilcoyne, Conor Murray, Peter O’Mahony, John Ryan, Rory Scannell and CJ Stander have all been included opening two rounds of the competition.

There's no place for the Racing 92-bound Simon Zebo, nor Scarlets and future Munster lock Tadhg Beirne.

Ireland fans will be excited at the prospect of seeing twenty year old Jordan Larmour in 6 nations action for the first time after he was named in the squad.

He only made his senior provincial debut back in September, but has played 13 times since for Leinster, and was just handed a first Champions Cup start last weekend against Glasgow Warriors.

 

Chris Farrell and Bundee Aki are also included in the 36 man squad, after earning their first caps in November.
