The Ireland coaching staff have issued a squad update as the players prepare for Sunday’s Guinness Series clash with Georgia.

Ed Byrne’s calf tightness ruled him out of playing a role at Twickenham.  He will continue his rehab this week. Ulster’s Eric O’Sullivan joins the squad to provide additional cover.

John Ryan flagged an issue during the warm-up which was treated but flared up again during the second half, he is expected to be able to train fully this week.

Johnny Sexton and Robbie Henshaw will continue their respective rehab programmes at the IRFU’s High Performance Centre this week.

Ireland will host Georgia at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday (KO 2.00pm) in their third fixture of the Autumn Nations Cup competition.  The game will be televised by both RTE and Channel 4.
