Rory Best sat out training this morning with the rest of the Irish squad ahead of Saturday's Six Nations visit of Scotland.

The Ireland captain is nursing a tight calf this week but he is hoping to be back in action when the squad returns to training on Thursday.

There was also good news in relation to both Cian Healy and Eoin Reddan who were able to train today in full.

Full-back Rob Kearney is definitely out of Saturday's game.

Ireland will finish above Scotland in the Six Nations table if they win the final game of the 2016 campaign.
