Cape Town - Centre Garry Ringrose is in contention to face Wales in the Six Nations this weekend after replacing Robbie Henshaw in the Ireland squad.

The 22-year-old has been struggling with an ankle issue since January but has now overcome that problem and joined training on Monday.

Meanwhile, scrumhalf John Cooney has been rewarded for his fine season with a call-up following an injury sustained to Leinster’s Luke McGrath.
