Joe Schmidt is expected to name his Ireland squad today for the upcoming November internationals.

Connacht centre Bundee Aki is set to be included after qualifying through the residency rule.

Ireland face South Africa, Fiji and Argentina at the Aviva Stadium next month.

Much interest will centre around whether or not Munster’s Simon Zebo will be included in the wake of the news that he will leave the province at the end of the season.

The IRFU has previously stated that they will give preference to Ireland-based players for selection.
