Cape Town - Jordi Murphy and Sean Reidy have joined the Ireland squad following injuries to Tommy O'Donnell and Dan Leavy which ruled them out of selection this week.

The Ireland management have issued a squad update ahead of their Test against Fiji on Saturday.

Following last Saturday's encounter against South Africa at the Aviva Stadium there are a few players who will either be managed or require further medical investigation.

Peter O'Mahony received a number of stitches to his ear. John Ryan presented with a calf injury following the game. He will rehab in Munster this week. 

The remainder of the match-day 23 emerged with the usual bumps and bruises but are expected to be fit to train this week.

Kick-off in Dublin is at 19:30 SA time.
