Fresh injury concerns for Ireland as Keith Earls sits out training

The list of Irish injury concerns just got longer with the news that Keith Earls sat out today’s training session in Cardiff.

The Munster winger was replaced during last week’s gruelling win against France and is described as being “battered” after the encounter.

Ireland scrum coach Greg Feek spoke about Earls after the training session.

“We’re going to see how he goes, we’re looking after him a bit,” he said. “It’s not too bad so we’ll see how he goes on Friday as well.”

Feek was asked what was the exact nature of Earls’ injury, and answered: “He’s just a bit battered, it’s nothing too major.”

Feek had more positive news to report on fly-half Johnny Sexton, saying he has trained well and they were ‘quietly confident’ he would be fit to face Argentina.
