Michael Murphy named on provisional rules squad

Irish International Rules manager Joe Kernan has announced a provisional panel to travel to Adelaide and Perth early next month to face Australia in the International Rules Series.

Donegal’s sole representative is Glenswilly’s Michael Murphy.

Tyrone’s Niall Morgan and Niall Sludden are named while Mattie Donnelly is on the standby list.

Former Tyrone minor star - Conor McKenna - now with Essendon in the AFL has been ruled out through injury.

Mayo's Aidan O'Shea will captain the team with Conor McManus of Monaghan serving as vice-captain.

O’Shea is one of four Mayo players included alongside Brendan Harrison, Chris Barrett and the Aussie-based Pearce Hanley.

Kerry provide 3 players in Paul Geaney, Paul Murphy and Peter Crowley.

Ireland's first test against Australia will be at the Adelaide Oval on November 12th, with a meeting in Perth coming six-days later.
