DUBLIN - Winger Simon Zebo was a notable absentee from the Ireland squad named on Thursday for the November Tests, days after the Munster winger announced he would leave his home country to play club rugby abroad next season.

In Zebo's absence, coach Joe Schmidt named four uncapped backs including New Zealand-born, Samoan-qualified centre Bundee Aki who became eligible for selection for the first time having spent the last three years at Connacht.

Zebo, who has played 35 times for Ireland at wing and fullback and is Munster's record try scorer by some distance, will leave at the end of the season after the province was unable to match offers from several European clubs.
