Ulster Elks captain Gemma Frazer will make her Ireland senior debut next week in the three-test series against Scotland in Glasgow.

Frazer, who was called up to the training panel earlier this year, is one of six Ulster players in a 20-strong squad.

Frazer will be joined by two Elks team mates in Ireland captain Megan Frazer and Shirley McCay, along with Ards duo Chloe Brown and Kerri McDonald as well as UCD's Katie Mullan, the former Ballymoney striker.

"We're missing a few senior players but that gives opportunities to other players in the squad to show what they can do," said national coach Graham Shaw.

Ireland face Scotland on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

IRELAND SQUAD: Stella Davis (Pembroke Wanderers); Cliodhna Sargent (Cork Harlequins); Shirley McCay (Ulster Elks); Hannah Matthews (Loreto); Kerri McDonald (Ards); Megan Frazer (Ulster Elks) (capt.); Nikki Evans (Hermes); Elena Tice (Loreto); Naomi Carroll (Hermes); Katie Mullan (UCD); Gillian Pinder (UCD); Ali Meeke (Loreto); Chloe Brown (Ards); Emily Beatty (UCD); Yvonne O'Byrne (Cork Harlequins); Deirdre Duke (UCD); Pamela Smithwick (Old Alex); Hayley Mulcahy (Loreto); Kate Lloyd (UCD); Gemma Frazer (Ulster Elks).
