NAME: Tadhg Beirne

DOB: 08/01/1992

POSITION: Lock / Flanker

DEBUT: v Glasgow Warriors, 7 Sep 2018

Beirne's reputation grew enormously last season, his 10 turnovers leading the way in the Six Nations.

That led to a call-up for the British and Irish Lions, where he scored three tries in six games, coming off the bench in both the first and second Tests against South Africa.

After winning the Pro14 Players’ Player of the Year as a Scarlet, he returned to Ireland to join Munster in 2018.
