"Conor Murray is accelerating through his recovery but will not join the squad", it said.

Munster star Murray would doubtless boost Ireland's rhythm and tactical kicking if he steps in against New Zealand though, but Ulster lock Henderson believes Schmidt's men are well covered for all eventualities.

Ireland confirmed on Monday that Murray would not take part in their autumn series, which ends against the United States next week, while his fellow 2017 Lion Robbie Henshaw has been ruled out of the final two matches after suffering a hamstring injury during Saturday's victory over Argentina at the Aviva Stadium. "I think he's a real competitor and will want to play". He's been training, and coach Joe Schmidt said on Saturday after beating Argentina that he'd let Murray decide on his availability. "I don't think so", said the 59-year-old.

"If I did have some advice for him I wouldn't be telling him through the media", Hansen said on the team's arrival in Dublin to prepare for this weekend's test against Ireland.

"They have all been tough, close games".

"We shouldn't really be giving them to Kiwis anyway, because we want to get as much green in there, as much volume supporting us as possible". "He and Sexton are two of the best players in the world, so they'll drive them around the park good".

The All Blacks and Ireland will face off on Sunday morning NZT.

"So we'll have a great plan, we'll have some experiences of what's worked against them in the past, what hasn't worked, and where they are the most risky. And two, it's always hard if you've got to substitute someone five minutes into a Test match".

Argentina coach Mario Ledesma predicted Ireland could push New Zealand next weekend.
