Healy earns Ireland squad call-up

Connacht back rewarded for great form

Matt Healy has been rewarded for his recent great form for Connacht by being called up to the 24-hour Ireland training camp this Sunday.

The 27-year-old has been in outstanding form this season, topping the Guinness Pro12 charts with nine tries and excelled at full-back in last weekend's heart-breaking Challenge Cup quarter-final loss at Grenoble.

Healy will join fellow uncapped players Garry Ringrose, Luke McGrath - both of Leinster - and provincial team-mate Quinn Roux in the 45-man training squad.

Healy had been called up for a day to the Ireland squad during the final week of the disappointing Six Nations campaign and his retention for this has marked him down as being a contender for the summer's tour to South Africa.
