“Those three guys trained really well today; Cian, Robbie and Keith they have trained the last couple of days and have looked sharp,” said Schmidt.
“The only one who is still in doubt is Joey really. He’d have to train fully on Thursday to be included in the match squad. He won’t start. Johnny will start at 10 so we’ll see how he goes. He’s going to do a little bit tomorrow and that will lead into training on Thursday and if he can’t train on Thursday he won’t be involved. That would be an unnecessary risk.”
