Munster’s Tommy O’Donnell to miss Irish tour of USA and Japan

Munster back row Tommy O’Donnell will miss Ireland’s upcoming tour to the USA and Japan due to an ankle injury.

The quad will depart on Monday with the first Test taking place in New Jersey the following Saturday. Ulster’s Sean Reidy has been selected as O’Donnell’s replacement on the tour.

Following their clash with the Eagles, Ireland will then travel to face Japan, whom they face in the pool stages of the 2019 World Cup, for two Tests in Shizuoka and Tokyo respectively.

O’Donnell ws one of nine Munster players selected with Rory Scannell in line to win his first Irish cap.

Joe Schmidt has named eight uncapped players in his squad with only five players boasting over 20 international caps. The side will be captained by Leinster’s Rhys Ruddock.
