Rugby My grandma says this plugin is adorable!!

JOEY CARBERY HAS been included in Joe Schmidt’s 40-man squad bound for a warm weather training camp in Portugal despite picking up an ankle injury last weekend against Italy.

The IRFU confirmed that Munster fly-half will be available for selection in “four to six weeks” as his rehab continues.

The versatile John Cooney is among a trio of players cut from Joe Schmidt’s panel. The Ulster man departs back to his provincial set-up alongside Connacht’s Finlay Bealham and Munster’s Mike Haley.

Further injury concerns surrounding Devin Toner have been allayed, with Irish Rugby confirming that his ankle knock “has not presented any further issues”.

Rob Herring also has “fully recovered” from a back spasm which forced him off against the Azzurri.

Jean Kleyn is included amongst the forwards after winning his first cap for Ireland last weekend, while in the backs there’s room for Dave Kearney who impressed at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday.
