IRISH captain Jamie Heaslip has said that players need to step up to plate or risk getting dropped.

When Jamie Heaslip was asked whether the decision to drop O'Gara from Ireland's 32-man training squad meant that anyone was droppable, he said: "In terms of who gets in and who gets out that is a decision for the management.

"Ronan has been a great player he's a great squad guy as well and now there's an opportunity for someone else to step in.

"We set our standards very high in training and our standards high in the game as well, and when you don't step up to that level' I suppose' the coaches have to make a decision then."
