Better injury news for Ireland

There's better news from the Irish rugby camp regarding Cian Healy's injury from Saturday night's test against the All Blacks.

Healy suffered a suspected hamstring injury which had coach Declan Kidney concerned on the night. But the injury turned out to be only a muscle strain.

Three of the tourists' front rowers have been injured on this trip, including their regular tighthead prop Mike Ross who missed the first test because of a hamstring injury.

Utility back Keith Earls has been ruled out of this weekend's second test after injuring a pectoral muscle at Eden Park.
