Craig Young to provide cover in Ireland Test Squad

Bready's Craig Young has been drafted into the Ireland suqad ahead of the test match with Pakistan.

The 28 year old who made his Ireland debut in 2013 comes in as cover for Nathan Smith who was forced to withdraw due to a side starin.

The preferred replacement Barry Carthy is also injuried so Young comes in.

It's now six north west players in the squad as Young joins, Andy McBrine, Stuart Thompson, William Porterfield, Niall O’Brien and Boyd Rankin.

Malahide plays host to Ireland's first ever test match from tomorrow morning.
