The team who'll face Ireland in this Saturday's 6 Nations clash against Ireland will be named later today.

Wales have been given a clean bill of health ahead of their 6 Nations game against Ireland on Saturday.

Leigh Halfpenny, Dan Biggar and Taulupe Faletau have all returned to training after missing their defeat against England at Twickenham.

Full-back Halfpenny, who scored two tries in Wales' opening Six Nations win against Scotland, missed the Twickenham defeat after picking up a foot injury.

Outside-half Biggar suffered a shoulder injury playing for the Ospreys in the Champions Cup last month and number eight Faletau has battled back from damaging knee ligaments.

Wales forward coach Robin McBryde said it was nice to have everyone back with a spring in their step

It's nice to have a few selection headaches and plenty of players to choose from. There's a competitive edge to training and there will be a few tough calls I'm sure, but we're looking forward to those discussions.
