Horan injury confirmed

It has been confirmed that Marcus Horan will not make this weekend's game against the Pacific Islands after a calf injury he suffered in the match against Australia.

While Horan is out Eddie has drafted in 10 players to his squad, they include Ulster's young back-row forward Stephen Ferris and Leinster's teenage full-back Luke Fitzgerald.

Also called up are Simon Best, Matt McCullough, Jeremy Staunton, Barry Murphy, Eoin Reddan, Jamie Heaslip, Ronnie McCormack, Keith Gleeson.

It should be interesting to see if Eddie uses two of the youngest members in the squad and give them their first cap.
