Ireland get double boost ahead of Scotland clash
SQUAD UPDATE: Ireland received a double boost ahead of their World Cup opener against Scotland on Sunday.
Ireland assistant coach Andy Farrell revealed that backline stars Rob Kearney and Keith Earls both trained well on Wednesday and they will be available for Sunday’s match.
Kearney had a problem with his knee, while Earls has been battling with a thigh injury.
Centre Robbie Henshaw was ruled out of the game earlier this week.
“We won’t take risks with any players. Robbie Henshaw is making good progress,” said Farrell.
“There is long tournament ahead, so we’ll take care of our players.”
