Ireland receive good injury news

Ireland full-back Geordan Murphy should be available to face Australia on Saturday despite suffering a hamstring strain.

Murphy sustained the injury during training but has not been ruled out of the pivotal World Cup Pool C clash at Eden Park.

Tony Buckley is also expected to recover in time to face the Wallabies.

A scan revealed the Munster prop sustained only bruising to his shoulder in the 22-10 victory over the United States.
