Fermanagh's Robert Baloucoune will be hoping to earn his first senior international cap after being named in Andy Farrell's 37 man Ireland squad for the Summer Series against Japan and USA at the Aviva Stadium next month.

Flying winger Baloucoune recovered from a bad hamstring injury to impress for Ulster and his performances have earned him selection in the squad as one of eight uncapped players.

Baloucoune is joined in the squad by Ulster team mate Will Addison, who has Enniskillen as his nominated club and has strong Fermanagh links, while former Clogher Valley player Chris Farrell is also included.

Ireland will take on Japan on Saturday 3rd July with kick off at 1.00pm and the fixture against the USA is on Saturday 10th July will kick off at 7.15pm. 

Both fixtures are part of the government’s outdoor pilot sport event programme which will see limited supporters back in the Aviva Stadium.
