Ireland handed HUGE triple Rugby World Cup fitness boost

On the money.

Ireland have been handed a massive triple injury boost ahead of their next Rugby World Cup game against Tonga on Saturday.

Robbie Henshaw, Dan Sheehan, and Dave Kilcoyne are all on track to be fit for this weekend’s clash with the Tongans as Ireland look to build on their record win over Romania in round one.

Speaking at the Complexe de la Chambriere, Ireland team manager Mick Kearney confirmed that Sheehan, Kilcoyne, and Henshaw “were all integrated fully into training today, and all trained fully”.

“We had a very good training session today and everybody came through that really well,” Kearney said.

Jack Conan, however, will have to wait until the South Africa game until he’s considered for selection, following his injury in the warm-ups.

Jack [Conan] was out running, which was a real positive, and while Saturday will come a little bit early for him, I think the signs are really positive in terms of being able to train fully next week, and hopefully, he will be available for South Africa.”
