Connacht's Finlay Bealham has been brought into the Ireland squad following the hamstring injury sustained by Marty Moore which has ruled him out of the tournament.

Moore , who confirmed today he will join Wasps at the end of the season, will not play any part in this year's Six Nations after suffering a hamstring injury in the province's humiliating 51-10 defeat at the hands of Wasps in the Champions Cup.

The 24-year-old suffered a hamstring tear that will keep him out of action for 6-8 weeks.

The IRFU has announced that Johnny Sexton has passed HIA 1, HIA 2 and will complete HIA 3 tomorrow, while Robbie Henshaw has suffered no ill-effects after playing for Connacht at the weekend.

The 24-year-old Australian-born prop qualifies for Ireland through his grandmother and made his Connacht debut in February 2014 against Zebre and has featured in all of Connacht’s 18 games this season

Bealham represented Ireland at Under-20’s level in the 2011 U20 6 Nations and World Championship.

Last summer, the front rower, who can play on both sides of the scrum, was one of eight Connacht players to travel to Georgia as part of the Emerging Ireland tour.
