Ireland to give Jordi Murphy ‘best chance’ to prove World Cup fitness

Ireland provides Jordi Murphy that thebest opportunity to shake off his leg injury and stay in the World Cup.
The Ulster back-rower lasted only 26 minutes of Thursdays 35-0 win which in midweek to replace the Jack Conan later jetting into Japan.
Ireland could call up Leinster lock Devin Toner as an replacement or Munsters Tommy ODonnell should the injury of Murphy prove too severe for him to stay with the group.
Hes going to get scanned today, and give an specific detail on what has occurred, explained Ireland scrum coach Feek, of Murphy.
We know its the ribs but will determine when we get that back exactly what his plan is.
The ribs normally pops , sometimes that could pop back in but that may be tender for some time.
These things can repay. The spot within the body is able to make it better or worse. I think hell be given the opportunity by us.
With the weekend away, a decent turnaround into another game, well assess him and go from there.
The side are still shaking off the after-effects of the shock 19-12 loss to Japan, although ireland can seal their eligibility with victory over Samoa in Fukuoka on Saturday, October 12.
Ireland got the job done with a triumph over Russia, the tournament group, but were left frustrated with their performance levels.
Ulster stalwart and Ireland captain Rory Best admitted trainer Joe Schmidts squad have all crossed that his rib issue cans shake off and stay at the World Cup.
You dont like to see anyone going home, such as happened with Jack a week, said the skipper of Murphys situation.
You know it is part and parcel of rugby, particularly at World Cups, since you have just 31 gamers (and) you cant afford to hang on to somebody and hope theyll be alright in a week or two because you dont have the luxury of time.
So I think from our standpoint Jordis a wonderful guy to get out here, he is very popular among the squad plus a fantastic player.
So for us we wish to keep all our best players out here, and it could be a real shame if something occurred.
But we could just take it as what it is. There is A rib something that occasionally looks a great deal worse and more painful coming off the pitch than it actually is. And hopefully that will settle down pretty quickly.
Meanwhile, Joey Carbery suffered a recurrence of the ankle injury that was a late withdrawal in the Russia match, also threatened his World Cup involvement in the very first spot in training on Wednesday.
And Feek admits Ireland will have towait and watch about the magnitude of the injury problem.
