Goalkeeper Stuart MacDonald, defender Daniel Lovat, midfielders Craig Mainland and Fraser Heath and Greg Matheson have been named in the squad which will play in Dublin on Saturday, November 2.

Scotland defeated Ireland 14-12 at Bught Park in Inverness in the international 12 months ago.

Scotland manager Garry Reid said he has selected a squad which he expects can retain their title.

“We have a selected a squad that have all had previous experience at under-21 or senior level and who on top of looking sharp and committed at International sessions have demonstrated through the season attributes that have made them stand out at club level.

"We are under no illusion that the squad will face an extremely tough test, with the fixture returning to Irish soil and an Ireland team under the guidance of a coaching team who are very experienced, it is clear that we will have to be at our very best in order to compete.”
