Rhys Ruddock has backed his brother Ciarán to make an impression from the bench this evening when the Ireland club side take on their Scottish counterparts, writes CIAN TRACEY.

Ruddock, who was previously on Leinster's books, is currently the captain of St Mary's and is part of an experienced match-day squad.

"I probably will go along," Rhys said.

"He's got a couple of gyms in town and he works crazy hours. He leaves the house at 5.15am every morning and then I wouldn't see him until 10pm.

"The only two evenings he has off he trains with Mary's. He works on Saturday morning and then plays a game on Saturday evening.

"So for me, he's probably been the biggest inspiration growing up and even now just in terms of his work rate, discipline and desire. It's an amazing reward for him and we're obviously delighted."

Twelve AIL clubs are represented in the squad with Garryowen pair, Neil Cronin, younger brother of Ireland hooker Seán, at scrum-half and Jamie Gavin at 10.

Ireland clubs (v Scotland clubs, Dubarry Park, 7.30) - J Swaine; H Brennan, N Kenneally, M D'Arcy, D McEvoy; J Gavin, N Cronin; C Gleeson, P Finlay, C Skehan; A Thompson, M Melia; J Dwan, J McSwiney, M Noone.

Reps: E Rossiter, E O'Reilly, M Cromie, C Ruddock, P Toifua, A Lloyd, M O'Neill, E Mills.
