Ireland Six Nations Squad 2023

Last year’s Triple Crown winners Ireland come into the 2023 Six Nations as No 1 side in the world. Andy Farrell’s men had a phenomenal 2022, winning a series in New Zealand for the first time ever. And now, Farrell has named his squad to take on the best of Europe.

Leinster back Jamie Osborne is the only uncapped to be named, but there are some other noteworthy choices. Munster ten Joey Carbery is not in the mix, with Ross Byrne selected. Nor are Ulster back three stars Robert Baloucoune or Michael Lowry – however, Jacob Stockdale is in.

Gavin Coombes returns to the fold, and Leinster wings Jordan Larmour and Jimmy O’Brien take their fight for a jersey into the Test arena, too.

Robbie Hendhaw misses out through injury.

Here is the full squad list.
