The Ireland squad trained in the picturesque setting of Melbourne Grammar School on team announcement day, as Michael Bradley’s men gear up for Saturday’s Test match against Australia.
Speaking about the players’ fitness levels as they head into their final game of the season, interim head coach Michael Bradley said: “Bearing in mind that it is the end of the season, we have curtailed the training for the last couple of weeks.
“But we are quite confident that fatigue won’t play a part in the match on Saturday.
“The training sessions have been reasonably short and we have been checking for response from the lads on a daily basis as to how they are feeling. They are feeling as fresh as we think we can have them at this part of the season.”
