Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt has added wing duo Craig Gilroy and Simon Zebo to his training squad ahead of the upcoming Six Nations.

The additions were confirmed as Schmidt awaits the outcome of a scan on Munster's Keith Earls.

“Earls was injured in Munster's final Heineken Cup (Pool) game and is undergoing a scan today to determine the extent of the injury. A further update will be available once the results are known,” read a statement from irishrugby.ie.

“A number of players reported to the Ireland training camp with bumps and bruises following the weekend. Their training workload will be managed over the coming days but none are considered injury concerns.”
