Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt has called-up uncapped Connacht prop Finlay Bealham to replace Wasps-bound Marty Moore.

Leinster confirmed this afternoon that Moore will miss this year's Six Nations after suffering a hamstring tear during Saturday's defeat to Wasps in the European Champions Cup.

Shortly afterwards, the English Premiership club announced that they have recruited the 24-year-old for next season on what is believed to be a three-year contract.

Meanwhile, born in Australia,  Bealham joined Connacht in 2014 and became involved with the Irish underage setup back in 2011.

He also represented Ireland at U20 level.
