Ireland confirms injured hooker Best for RWC match

Updated: October 06, 2011, 01:33

WELLINGTON, New Zealand(AP) Ireland has confirmed Rory Best in its starting lineup for Saturday's Rugby World Cup quarterfinal against Wales despite the hooker's shoulder injury.

Ireland reaffirmed the intention to start Best to meet tournament requirements that squads are confirmed two days before a match. Best could still be withdrawn if he fails to recover sufficiently from the right shoulder injury he sustained in the 36-6 final pool win over Italy.

Sean Cronin is the reserve hooker and will step up from the bench if Best pulls out.
