Five Munster Players In Ireland Churchill Cup XV
6 June 2008, 6:21 pm
Munster full back Denis Hurley will make his international A debut in an Ireland starting XV that includes colleagues Keith Earls, Kieran Lewis, Tomas O'Leary and Denis Fogarty for the Churchill Cup opener against the USA on Wednesday



Meanwhile, Alan Quinlan and Luke Fitzgerald have both been ruled out of contention for selection for the Ireland team to play Australia this weekend.

Both players had been carrying thigh (Quinlan) and ankle (Fitzgerald) injuries and while they have responded well to their rehabilitation programmes, their projected recovery times mean that they will not be available to play against Australia.

Stephen Ferris has already been called into the squad as cover for Quinlan, but no replacement is being sought by the Ireland management for Fitzgerald.
