O'Connell back in green

Munster's Paul O'Connell was back in training today with Irish squad.

It is the first time he has trained since being called by Joe Schmidt for the Guinness series against Samoa, Australia and New Zealand.

It is unknown whether or not the Munster man will be selected on Saturday as he missed training last week due to a calf injury.

In other news for the squad Keith Earls has been ruled out for the Samoa clash due to a knee injury while Donncha O'Callaghan and James Coughlan have taken up their place on the squad.
