Ireland Injury Free For Clash With Romania

IRFU CrestIreland team manager Mick Kearney has confirmed that every player is available for selection for this Sunday’s match against Romania. Johnny Sexton, Iain Henderson, Peter O’Mahony and Robbie Henshaw were all thought to be slight fitness concerns after yesterday’s training but Kearney has confirmed that the quartet are in contention for the trip to Wembley. Head coach Joe Schmidt will name his team at lunchtime tomorrow. ======= Meanwhile, Wales have been given an official warning by the sports governing body. They used several players who are not part of their official 31-man World Cup squad in a training session yesterday. It’s against tournament regulations, but World Rugby is happy that it wasn’t a deliberate breach of the rules. There’s just one game tonight at the World Cup as defending champions New Zealand will be expected to win comfortably against Namibia at the Olympic Stadium in London, where the action gets underway at 8pm.
