Joe Schmidt has named his 31-man Ireland squad for the Rugby World Cup.
It's official, after a morning of rumours and leaks, the official Irish Rugby World Cup squad has been released, six days ahead of the originally planned announcement and schedule.
Irish Rugby has tweeted the squad this Monday afternoon and the big news is confirmed: Devin Toner misses out on a seat on the plane to Japan later this month.
Other notable omissions include Will Addison, Jordi Murphy, Kieran Marmion and Ross Byrne.
Meanwhile, Chris Farrell and Andrew Conway, who both performed well in Saturday's victory over Wales in Cardiff, make the squad.
