Keith Earls declared fit as Ireland squad prepares to travel to Japan

Ireland will take a fully fit squad to Japan for the World Cup.

Keith Earls has been cleared to travel despite picking up a knock in Saturday's warm-up win over Wales at the Aviva.

The IRFU confirmed that the squad which will travel to Japan on Wednesday is unchanged from the 31 named by Joe Schmidt last Monday.

Ireland begin their pool campaign against Scotland in Yokohama on September 22.
