WATCH: Reaction To Ireland’s Rusty Win Over Italy

Joe Schmidt’s Ireland team beat Italy 29-10 in the first warm up game before the World Cup but the game was over shadowed by an injury to Joey Carbery.

Schmidt confirmed there was no fracture to the ankle but that the player would undergo a scan once the swelling reduces.

Also in today’s game Munster’s Jean Kleyn & Mike Haley made their Irish debuts.
