A 38-player panel has been named for the 2017 Guinness Series which sees Ireland take on South Africa, Fiji and Argentina at Dublin's Aviva Stadium in November.

Six Ulster players have been named in the squad.

Ireland Head Coach, Joe Schmidt, said: "In what we anticipate will be an incredibly physical Guinness Series plenty will be demanded of the squad.

"We have retained a core of experienced players but have also included a number of promising players that we hope will acquit themselves well.”

The South Africa fixture on November 11 is a sell-out but there are limited tickets available for Fiji (45,000+ sold) and Argentina (50,000+ sold).
