Concerns over Kearney and Reddan

Rob Kearney and Eoin Reddan have emerged as injury doubts for Ireland's RBS Six Nations game against Italy on Saturday.

Kearney sat out Tuesday's training session at Carton House due to a slight hamstring problem, while Reddan is struggling with a tight calf.

The Leinster duo will be reassessed on Thursday before a decision in made on their availability for the game at the Aviva Stadium.

"Rob Kearney had a slight hamstring issue so he sat out, and Eoin Reddan had a calf issue so he sat out training as well," Ireland scrum coach Greg Feek confirmed.

"From here we follow the protocols and wait until Thursday to reassess then, and because they are backs we’ll have to wait a little bit longer as well.

"He’s sitting (Kearney) there and I never had a chance to speak to the medics or Rob himself, so we’ll just wait and see at the moment. I’m not sure it’s the same injury either so I don’t want to speculate as to it being an ongoing issue either."

Tommy O'Donnell took full part in the training session after suffering a stinger while playing for Munster at the weekend.

"Tommy O’Donnell trained fully today so he was good," Feek said.
