New Ireland coach, Joe Schmidt looks set to put his faith in Ulster winger Andrew Trimble for Sunday’s opening Six Nations match against Scotland in Dublin’s Aviva Stadium.

Trimble, who has been stuck on 50 Irish caps, was overlooked by former coach, Declan Kidney for last year’s Six Nations and Schmidt did not include the Coleraine man in his squad during the November Test series.

Trimble’s form in the past coming into Irish selection windows has had a tendancy to drop with his Province, but this season he has been outstanding, recently becoming Ulster’s most capped player in Europe when he played his 59th consecutive game in the Heineken Cup.
