Munster out-half Joey Carbery is part of the 40-man squad flying to Portugal today for an eight-day warm-weather training camp.

The 23-year-old suffered an ankle injury in last Saturday's win over Italy, and will continue his rehab with the national squad, but he is not expected to be available for selection for another 4-6 weeks.

Devin Toner (ankle) and Rob Herring (back spasm) have fully recovered and will travel, but Connacht prop Finlay Bealham, Ulster scrum half John Cooney and Munster back Mike Haley have returned to their provincial bases.

Ireland will face England in Twickenham on Saturday 24th August, with the team named by Joe Schmidt on Thursday 22nd August.
