Ireland coach Adam Griggs has included eight uncapped players in his squad for upcoming training games against Scotland and France. 

The matches will serve as preparation games for the November International Test against Wales in UCD on 10 November. 

Leinster players Judy Bobbett, Victoria Dabanovich O'Mahony, Grace Miller, Hannah O'Connor, Katie O'Dwyer, join Shannon Touhey from Connacht, Munster's Dorothy Wall and Irish Qualified (IQ) Mary Healy as the uncapped players included. 

Griggs said: "We're really looking forward to this weekend’s camp and the next few weeks ahead leading into our Test match vs Wales.

"Each player included in the squad has been selected on their form through the Interpro series and the Tyrells Premiership.

"As well as having a larger squad to travel and play, this will give the coaching group a chance to look at different combinations and give the players a great opportunity to test themselves at an international level and see how they handle the step up in pace and intensity.

"We also have two new coaches on board this year, who have added real quality to the work Jeff Carter and Mike Ross have started with this group.

"Steven McGuinness who works full time with IQ Rugby is our new forwards coach and Kieran Hallett who is with Leinster as an EPDO has come in as our defence coach. It’s great to see the professionalism of the new coaches and the value they have brought to the players."

The trip to Scotland is the first of two away training camps and training matches the national side will undertake, with the squad traveling to France next weekend, ahead of their International Test against Wales.

Ireland won just one of five Six Nations games earlier this year
