Huge congratulations to former Ballymena player Rab Brady, who is to be awarded an Ireland cap after playing in Ireland’s tour of Japan in 1985.
The IRFU is to award caps to 12 players who featured for Ireland but were not awarded caps at the time for games which were not then recognised as International Test Matches.
Dating back to 1946, and ranging up to 1989, the players will be honoured with an Ireland cap and enrolled in the official list of International Players.
The 12 players will be honoured at a pre-match event at the Bank of Ireland Nations Series match against England on Saturday, 19 August in Aviva Stadium.
