Ireland Issue Squad Update Ahead Of World Cup Flight To Japan

All aboard.

Following their final warm-up game against Wales on Saturday, Ireland will fly out to Japan for the 2019 Rugby World Cup this Wednesday.

The squad is unchanged from that named last Monday as all players have been declared fit to travel, with the likes of Keith Earls and Cian Healy initially thought to be doubtful after Saturday’s win.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – hosted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy, Ireland international Megan Williams and Olympic sevens star, Greg O'Shea. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.
