The Ireland World Cup squad have moved into a new World Cup location and captain Paul O'Connell was greeted with a touching family picture on arrival.

Joe Schmidt's side made it two bonus-point victories in a row in front of a record crowd at Wembley yesterday, their six-try performance too much for Romania.

Next up for the Six Nations champions is Italy before a crunch pool finale against France on October 11th.

The squad moved to a new base in Surrey today and O'Connell was delighted to be greeted by some familiar faces.
