Kearney available for Twickenham

Ireland full-back Rob Kearney is expected to be fit for Saturday's NatWest 6 Nations game against England despite sitting out training on Tuesday.

Man-of-the-match in the 28-8 win over Scotland, Kearney is nursing a couple of slight injuries ahead of the weekend and he did not take place in Tuesday's training session at Carton House.

Ireland skills and kicking coach Richie Murphy was quick to dismiss concerns over his fitness, insisting the Leinster man will be available for selection.

“Rob is fine, it’s just a case of managing his load. He picked up a couple of bangs during the game at the weekend and we are just easing him back into the week. He is perfectly fine and available for selection," Murphy told reporters at Carton House.

“He got caught a little bit on his ankle. The medics have looked at him, they are very happy with where he is at and we felt that just with Rob’s age and stuff like that we have to look after him.”

Johnny Sexton, meanwhile, came through Saturday's game without and issues and will be ready for the game at Twickenham.

“Johnny trained fully this morning and is fine. We were managing him a little bit through last week but he has come through that process.

“He missed one kick from 42 or 43 metres on the angle; the rest of the kicks were really good. He’s had to manage that side of it but I think he managed it really well. He is in a good place, he trained today, he kicked today, he’ll kick tomorrow and is building into Saturday’s game with no issues.”
