Leinster winger James Lowe has been added to the Ireland squad after his remarkable performance for the province at the weekend.


The New Zealand-born winger scored a 65 metre try as the men in blue brushed past the Ospreys 27 – 7 in their United Rugby Championship match in the RDS on Saturday.

Having missed the Guinness Six Nations’ opening two rounds through injury, Lowe’s secondhalf turn was enough to see him drafted straight back into the mix ahead of Ireland’s Round 3 game with Italy.
