SPORT: DRICCO MISSES TRAINING BECAUSE OF STOMACH BUG

The Ireland coaching staff say they’re confident that Brian O’Driscoll will be fit to face England this weekend.

Ireland’s most-capped player was unable to train this afternoon at Carton House because of a stomach bug, but he’s expected to return to action on Thursday before head coach Joe Schmidt reveals his starting team for the trip to Twickenham.

England backs coach Andy Farrell fully expects O’Driscoll to start on Saturday and he knows how formidable an opponent he can be.
