Ireland's rugby management team have issued an injury update following the second game of the Guinness Series game on Saturday. 

Following the historic win over the All Blacks, a number of players will be 'managed' across the week ahead of Ireland's final test of the series, against the USA on Saturday.

Man of the match from Saturday's win, Peter O’Mahony, suffered a dead leg and his training load will be managed accordingly.

Meanwhile, Leinster's Sean Cronin, Jack McGrath, Rob Kearney, James Ryan, Jordan Larmour, Dan Leavy and and Connacht's Kieran Marmion have re-joined their provinces.  

In the last injury update, it was confirmed that openside Dan Leavy has a neck strain and his rehabilitation will be managed at Leinster.

Munster now have 11 players in camp with Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell, John Ryan, Tadhg Beirne, Joey Carbery, Sam Arnold, Andrew Conway and Darren Sweetnam all joining Keith Earls, Peter O'Mahony and CJ Stander in  Carton House. 

The trio who played last weekend, Earls, O'Mahony and Stander are all expected to be rested this weekend.
