Rhys Ruddock has been called up to the Ireland rugby camp in place of the injured Peter O’Mahony.
O’Mahony was this morning ruled out of the remainder of the World Cup, due to a knee ligament injury sustained in last night's gruelling win over France.
In the last hour Irish Rugby announced that 24-year-old Leinster flanker Ruddock will take his place in the 31-man squad.
Ruddock has five Irish caps since first getting a senior start in 2010 against Australia.
He has also played for Ireland U20 and Emerging Ireland and has 93 caps for Leinster, where he has played since 2009.
Ruddock is expected to join the rest of the squad in Cardiff today.
