Angus Curtis is Ulster's lone potential debutant.

While injury has ruled out the likes of Jordan Larmour and Cillian Gallagher, Caelan Doris has been deemed fit enough to travel to Georgia.

Ireland begin their Group B campaign against Italy on May 31, before games with Scotland and the Baby Blacks.
