Reports on injuries from the Ireland camp suggest that the only injury concern is Rob Kearney, who will have a scan later today.
The full-back scored a try when he came on during the second-half of Ireland’s win over Romania yesterday, but injured himself in the process.
Head coach Joe Schmidt said after the match that Kearney had “jarred” his glute and was icing it, and today it was confirmed that his injury is a gluteal strain.
The medical team will know more about the extent of the injury after the scan.
