Ireland announce squad for All Black Test

Ireland have confirmed the 27 players that will travel to Chicago today to play against New Zealand at Soldier Field on Saturday November fifth.

Although there are a number of bumps and bruises from involvement in the weekend's PRO12 fixtures the squad selected has been declared fit to travel. 

Players returning to full fitness Sean O'Brien, Iain Henderson and Peter O'Mahony along with Paddy Jackson, unavailable due to personal reasons, will not make the trip to Chicago.

The players trained this morning at Carton House and will train again on Thursday morning ahead of this weekend's match versus the All Blacks.
