A 31 man Ireland squad has been named by Ireland Coach Declan Kidney for the 2012 Guinness Series games against South Africa and Argentina at Aviva Stadium.
There are four uncapped players selected with centre Luke Marshall and forward Iain Henderson named in the panel and who were involved in the Ireland training camp in September.
The newcomers to the squad are prop David Kilcoyne and hooker Richardt Strauss, who is now eligible to play for Ireland based on his residency for the past three years.
Ticket sales have reached over 46,000 for the South Africa game with only a limited number of categories available for purchase from www.irishrugby.ie and www.ticketmaster.ie.
While the Argentina game is a full month away, ticket sales are at just over 37,000 tickets and are selling quickly and have already surpassed the attendance the last time Argentina visited the Aviva Stadium.
