Ireland's Johnny Sexton fit to face Wales

Fly-half Johnny Sexton overcomes a hamstring complaint to feature for Ireland against Wales in the Six Nations.

Johnny Sexton has been passed fit for Ireland's Six Nations clash against Wales on Saturday afternoon.

The fly-half had been regarded as a doubt for the encounter at the Millennium Stadium because of a hamstring injury.

However, having taken a full part in training earlier today, assistant coach Richie Murphy has confirmed that the 29-year-old will be available for selection.

Murphy also revealed that Jamie Heaslip, Sean O'Brien and Jared Payne have also overcome knocks to feature.
