Joe Schmidt has named his Ireland squad for the upcoming Autumn internationals and the big news is that there is no place for out-half Paddy Jackson with Munster's Ian Keatley seemingly taking his place in the squad.
There's also space for two New Zealand born debutants in the shape of Connaught prop Nathan White and Ulster's Jared Payne. They join Connaught's Darragh Leader, Munster's Dave Foley and Leinster's Dominic Ryan as the only uncapped selections.
The Ulster pair of Andrew Trimble and Luke Marshall had already ruled out earlier in the day and they join and extensive injury list which includes Keith Earls, Luke Fitzgerald, Cian Healy, Iain Henderson, Dave Kearney, Fergus McFadden, Martin Moore, Jordi Murphy, Sean O'Brien, Donnacha Ryan, Mike Sherry, Dan Touhy, and Damien Varley.
Ireland will play tests against South Africa on November 8th and Australia on November 22nd. Sandwiched in between will be a match against Georgia on November 16th. All of the matches will take place in the Aviva Stadium.
Ireland squad for Autumn Internationals:
Rodney Ah You
Paul O'Connell CAPTAIN
In what will be an interesting side note for Leinster fans, Australia are likely to line-up against Ireland with former Leinster coach Michael Cheika in charge after he was offered the opportunity to replace Ewen McKenzie as coach of the Wallabies.
