The Latest On Rob Kearney & Conor Murray’s Fitness For Ireland


Fullback Rob Kearney did not train with the Ireland team today and remains a major doubt for this weekend’s Test with Argentina at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

The 32-year-old picked up a shoulder injury in Leinster’s PRO14 win over Benetto Treviso a couple of weeks back and is ’50/50′ for Saturday’s game according to scrum coach Greg Feek. Should he not make it, Jordan Larmour is poised to start.

Conor Murray meanwhile, was not in camp today, but once again Ireland are refusing to rule him out of a sensational return in time for the All Blacks game on November 17th.

Murray was in France last night picking up an award from the French media, so that perhaps explains his absence.

Dan Leavy is also unlikely to feature this weekend, having only arrived into camp from South Africa today, leaving the door open for Sean O’Brien to potentially start after a long absence in green.
