However, four of those selected, out-half David Humphreys, centre Brian O'Driscoll and back-rows Eric Miller and David Wallace, are all the subject of further fitness assessments. Humphreys and Wallace underwent just light training sessions this morning at Greystones RFC. Eric Miller took no part whatsoever while Brian O'Driscoll was forced to retire after 30 minutes of the session when he took a knock to his knee.
