Ireland head coach Andy Farrell has named a 50-man squad for a one-day training camp ahead of the upcoming November internationals.

The extended group will gather at the IRFU’s High-Performance Centre at the Sport Ireland Campus in Dublin, as preparations begin for the three-game home Autumn Series against Japan (November 6), New Zealand (November 13) and Argentina (November 21).

Having capped nine new players during the summer, Farrell has again called up Robert Baloucoune, Caolin Blade, Paul Boyle, Harry Byrne, Gavin Coombes, James Hume, Tom O’Toole, Nick Timoney and Fineen Wycherley.

The newest members of the squad are joined by the more experienced players such as Johnny Sexton, Cian Healy and Keith Earls, who all return after being given the summer off.

Ireland's Lions Jack Conan, Tadhg Furlong, Robbie Henshaw, Conor Murray, Tadhg Beirne and Bundee Aki are also included in the squad.

So too are the likes of Andrew Porter, Will Connors and Garry Ringrose, as they continue their recoveries from respective injuries.
