Ireland head coach Andy Farrell looks set to have a full deck to pick from ahead of Saturday's Six Nations opener against Wales.

The 37-man Ireland squad have been put through their paces at a training camp in Portugal in recent days and since arriving in Quinta da Lago, Keith Earls (strain), Josh van der Flier (strain) and Joey Carbery (elbow) have taken a full part in the sessions.

The trio are expected to be involved in this weekend's match-day 23, after overcoming recent injuries.

Tadhg Furlong (calf), James Ryan (hamstring) and Iain Henderson (ankle) have been managing respective knocks, but in a further boost to Farrell, all three key forwards are set to train tomorrow.

Farrell will hope they can prove their fitness in time, before the squad returns to Dublin on Wednesday.
