The Irish camp are confident that a travel sickness bug that has affected a few players won’t rule anybody out of Sunday’s International Rules test with Australia in Adelaide.

However, it’s an unwelcome distraction for the 23-strong squad, all of whom are required for action.

Team physio, Enda McGinley said that a few players had been affected, as indeed he has.

It sometimes hits after long haul flights - the squad travelled to Melbourne on Sunday, via Dubai - and while it normally passes quickly, it can have a debilitating impact.

“It’s obviously far from ideal with the Test match coming up on Sunday, players that are affected have been given single rooms. Every step is being taken,” said McGinley.

Sligo’s Niall Murphy and and Roscommon’s Enda Smith were the first to feels the effects.

The squad travelled from Adelaide to Melbourne today and are due to train tomorrow morning when medical staff will assess the situation.
