It was a busy day for the Ireland players at Carton House where they had a pitch session in the morning and spoke to the media in the afternoon, along with skills and kicking coach Richie Murphy. Check out some photos from the training ground.

One of the players who is set to feature against the Eagles, Munster hooker Niall Scannell, commented: “There is an inspiration factor, just in terms of watching them execute (against New Zealand) what they said they would do last week. You know if you get a chance against the USA this week, that’s where the bar is. You have to get to that standard.
“Every chance you get in an Irish jersey you have to put your hand up, that’s the responsibility you take on when you play with Ireland. It’s certainly an added factor. I didn’t play last week and I want to show what I can do. It’s our last chance in a green jersey before we go back to our provinces.”
