Finlay Bealham, twisted his knee against Italy on Saturday and has been ruled out for the rest of the Six Nations.
Bealham had started all games in the Six Nations campaign to date and was one of three Connacht players released from Ireland camp today. Cian Prendergast and Caolin Blade will be available to play Dragons away on Saturday.
27 players will partake in a two day mini-camp later this week which culminates in an Open Training Session against Richie Murphy’s unbeaten Ireland U20s at the Aviva Stadium on Thursday morning.
Ireland captain Johnny Sexton is named in the group for the mini-camp, as is Garry Ringrose who was a late withdrawal from the Italy game with a tight calf and Robbie Henshaw who is returning from injury.
Also included for this week’s camp are Jamison Gibson Park (hamstring) and Tadhg Furlong (calf), neither of whom have featured to date in the 2023 Guinness Six Nations Championship.
All four Provinces are in URC action this weekend with a number of players released from the wider group to access game time.
