Andy Farrell names 36-man Ireland squad for England clash

Andy Farrell has assembled a 36-man squad as Ireland prepare to face England at Twickenham on Sunday.

The head coach retained 23 players for a two-day camp in Cork last week, while 13 others were released back to their provinces to get game-time.

All 13 were in action as Connacht, Munster, and Leinster recorded wins, while Ulster lost narrowly to the Ospreys.

Will Connors was the outstanding performer, scoring two tries for Leinster, while his teammate Ronan Kelleher, Connacht's Dave Heffernan, Munster's Jack O’Donoghue, and Ulster's Stuart McCloskey also got tries.

Connors and Heffernan both received man of the match awards for their respective displays.
