Munster prop called into Irish squad ahead of England warm up clash

He was first called up to the squad for the fourth round of the 2022 Six Nations and later the tour of New Zealand that summer.

Munster prop Jeremy Loughman has been aded to the Irish training squad ahead of Saturday’s Autumn Nations Series Match with England at the Aviva.

The 27-year-old made his debut for Ireland last year in the clash with Fiji in the Aviva. He is likely to provide cover for club mate Dave Kilcoyne who has a knock.

He was first called up to the squad for the fourth round of the 2022 Six Nations and later the tour of New Zealand that summer.

However, he had to wait for his debut in November owing to injury.

Ireland host England this Saturday with kick off at 5.30pm. It is the second World Cup warm up game for the Irish after beating Italy less than a fortnight ago.

Andy Farrell’s men round out their warm up games next weekend against Samoa before kicking off their World Cup campaign against Romania on September 7.
