Ireland have called up uncapped Ulster prop Eric O'Sullivan in the squad ahead of the third round of the Autumn Nations Cup clash against Georgia.
O'Sullivan has been with Ulster since his professional rugby debut in 2018 and signed his first senior contract ahead of the 2019/20 season. A product of Ulster Academy, the 24-year-old had also represented Dublin University and Banbridge in the past.
He has been called as a replacement for Ed Byrne, who is sidelined with a calf injury.
Meanwhile, John Ryan, who suffered an injury leading to the game against England during which he had discomfort is expected to undergo full training this week.
Ireland are at second place in Group A with a defeat and a win apiece in the opening two games and will face Georgia in the final round of the league stage on Sunday.
