The Ireland team trained today in UCD in preparation for their game against Scotland in the RBS Six Nations Championship. Captain Brian O'Driscoll completed a fitness session and had no reaction to his calf afterwards. He will undergo a full fitness test tomorrow to confirm his availability for the weekend.
Girvan Dempsey picked up a knock to his left hip during the training session today and being so close to the game, Geordan Murphy, who was named in the Leicester squad this weekend, has been called back into the Ireland camp as a precaution. Dempsey will undergo a fitness test tomorrow to determine if he will play on Saturday.
Tony Buckley came through the session and also a full fitness test and has been confirmed as being fit to take his position among the replacements for the game.
