Wedding fever has swept the Irish rugby squad.

Leinster and Ireland star Fergus McFadden is engaged to long-term girlfriend Rebecca Sinnamon. The 30-year-old popped the question in June while on holiday, but avoided making a public announcement except for a photo of the sparkler on Facebook.

The couple are reportedly looking at walking up the aisle next July, according to the Irish Daily Mail.

McFadden and Sinnamon, a jazz singer who now teaches at BIMM Music School in Dublin, were teenage sweethearts and briefly split from 2011 to 2013 before reconciling in 2014.

They followed in Cian Healy's footsteps - who last year reunited with ex-girlfriend of six years Laura Smith.

They won't be short of advice for their big day as Ireland teammates Devin Toner, Keith Earls, Tommy O'Donnell and former Leinster player Eoin O'Malley have all wed in recent weeks.
