Ireland have been struck by another injury blow with the news that veteran hooker Rory Best will miss Saturday’s Test against South Africa.

The 32-year-old has been unable to train fully this week due to a calf injury that has now ruled the Ulster stalwart out of the clash in Dublin.

In better news for Irish fans, tighthead prop Mike Ross is expected to be available having recovered from a groin injury, which is some relief for coach Joe Schmidt, who has limited options following injuries to Marty Moore and Nathan White

Ireland will announced their team on Thursday.
