Declan Kidney has named Ireland’s squad for the Rugby World Cup 2011, with Brian O’Driscoll captaining the side.
On first look, Tomas O’Leary is one of the biggest casualties, whilst the injury that ruled out Felix Jones has led to Geordan Murphy being recalled. Luke Fitzgerald is the other major casualty.
Their first match is against the USA on September the 11th in Taranaki.
