Ireland Rugby Football Union Announces Team Roster for Match at BBVA Compass Stadium


Interim Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) head coach Les Kiss announced the 28-man roster for Ireland's match against the USA Men's National Rugby Team on Saturday, June 8 at BBVA Compass Stadium.  The match will be the first leg of Ireland's North American tour as they continue play on June 15 in Toronto.

Ireland is comprised of players from the country's four professional provincial teams including Ulster, Leinster, Connacht, and Munster.  Peter O'Mahony, the 23-year-old flanker currently playing for Munster, will make his debut as the team's captain.  O'Mahony, the youngest captain for Ireland since 2002, made 14 caps with 10 starts since his international debut in 2012.

Ireland will arrive in Houston on Saturday, June 1 with team practices beginning Monday, June 3 at Houston Amateur Sports Park (HASP).  A complete schedule of media availability, photo opportunities and community events will be released later this week.
