No Room For Zebo In 50-Man Ireland Training Camp For Autumn Internationals

Leinster's Ross Byrne and Ulster's John Cooney have also been omitted.

Simon Zebo has been left out of Ireland's 50 player training squad ahead of the Autumn internationals. 

The 31-year-old, who hasn't played for his country since 2017, is eligible for selection after returning to Munster from France this summer. 

There's also no place in the group for Leinster out-half Ross Byrne or Ulster scrum-half John Cooney. 

Munster centre Chris Farrell says Zebo brings a freshness to their squad this season:

Ireland head-coach Andy Farrell has included Johnny Sexton, Cian Healy and Keith Earls after giving the veteran trio a break this summer. 

Farrell's side will face Japan, New Zealand and Argentina in November.
