Kearney still in contention to face Scotland

Rob Kearney is still in contention for Sunday’s World Cup opener between Ireland and Scotland in Japan.

The Leinster full back has been suffering tightness in his calf.

He trained on his own today and is hoping to be back training with the full squad tomorrow.

Robbie Henshaw has already been ruled out of the match in Yokohama and Keith Earls has yet to resume full training.
