The Irish team to take on England at Twickenham on Saturday, is set to be named this morning.
Leinster's Ross Byrne is expected to get the nod at out-half in the World Cup warm-up game, after Johnny Sexton sat out Tuesday's training session in Portugal.
It is understood the Kilkenny County Board will be appealing Richie Hogan's red card from Sunday's All-Ireland final defeat to Tipperary.
The Danesfort clubman will miss the opening game of the 2020 championship as things stand.
The Irish Independent are reporting this morning that Kilkenny are awaiting the contents of referee James Owens' match report to see what Hogan is cited for.
