There are four injures worries for the Irish rugby team to face Italy on Saturday week.

Brian O’Driscoll
Brian continues to recuperate and took part in on-field rugby activity today in Belfast but did his conditioning work off-feet to facilitate his continuing recovery.

Peter O’Mahony
Peter’s hamstring strain is improving.  It is hoped that he will commence running over the weekend.

Johnny Sexton
The Ireland Medical Team have had a Consultant Hand Specialist review Johnny and his scans.

The ligament damage sustained does not warrant surgery and if Johnny continues his current rate of improvement we would be confident that he will be available for selection against Italy.

Andrew Trimble
Andrew took a knock to his knee during the training session in Belfast today and was withdrawn from the session as a precaution.  Initial review revealed no immediate concerns and he will be reviewed again tomorrow.
