Late Irish call-up for Geordan Murphy

Figure image
Tigers full back Geordan Murphy has been called up to the Ireland squad for Saturday's Test against the All Blacks in Wellington.

Murphy takes Paddy Wallace's spot among the replacements after the Ulster player was drafted into the starting XV in place of injured centre Luke Fitzgerald.

If Murphy takes to the field in New Zealand it will be his 57th international appearance.
After facing the Kiwis on Saturday (kick off 8.35am UK time), Ireland travel to Australia for another one-off Test in Melbourne (kick off 11.05am UK time).
