Late call for Geordan

Figure image
Geordan Murphy has been called into the Ireland squad as cover for winger Denis Hickie who suffered a back spasm in training yesterday.

Leinster winger Hickie pulled out of the session in Dublin as a precaution and will be closely monitored by the national squad's medical staff ahead of Saturday's RBS 6 Nations Championship match against Scotland at Murrayfield.

Murphy, who has 46 international caps, was part of the Irish training squad earlier in the week but had returned to Leicester in preparation for Sunday's Guinness Premiership trip to Gloucester.
