Please note:

  • David Meyler has been placed on standby, and has been contacted by the manager.
  • Paddy Madden has picked up a knee injury and is unavailable for selection.

*Clarification on Joey O’Brien:

Our medical teams were speaking prior to Joey’s withdrawal from the Irish squad. A decision was reached based on Joey’s serious knee injury sustained two years ago, and he requires treatment during the international window next week after a patellar tendon flare up. The manager has given his blessing to this as we have sufficient cover on this occasion. He may feature for his club tomorrow.
