Please see the following injury update for the Ireland Squad following Saturday's game against France in the RBS 6 Nations Championship.
Rob Kearny injured his right knee during the first half of the game and was forced to leave the field. Kearney had a scan on his knee this afternoon and it has confirmed a strain to his medial ligament. Kearney will undergo rehabilitation, but is considered doubtful for the game against England in Twickenham.
Brian O'Driscoll took a blow to his left knee and suffered some bone bruising to the joint. The injury will be monitored but the Ireland team are optimistic that he will be available for the England game.
Leo Cullen twisted his right ankle but there is no serious damage and he is expected to be fit for selection.
John Hayes took a blow to the head but the injury is not serious and he should be available for the England game.
The Ireland starting fifteen from the France game will come together this week for a short camp in Cork while the replacements will return to their provinces for selection in the next round of Magners League games this weekend.
