New Ireland head coach Declan Kidney has included Leicester Tigers full-back Geordan Murphy in his first international squad for a pre-season get-together.

The 45-man squad includes the players who toured with the Ireland team to New Zealand and Australia as well as 11 players from the Churchill Cup squad.

Ahead of the four-day camp in Cork from Tuesday (August 5), head coach Kidney said: "This is an opportunity for the coaching staff to work with the players and set some foundations ahead of what is going to be an important November for us. We have a new blend of experience in the coaching staff and we felt that this camp would be key to getting the ideas of both the staff and players across ahead of the new season.”
