Joe Schmidt hasn't ruled Josh van der Flier or Rob Kearney out of contention for next week's game against Wales but is less hopeful about Robbie Henshaw's chances. 

Flanker Van der Flier was replaced in the first half of Ireland's 26-14 win over France, while full-back Kearney strained his calf during yesterday's captain's run and was withdrawn just before kick-off, his place taken by Jordan Larmour.

"Josh Van Der Flier, got twisted awkward, we'll know more about that in the next couple of days," said Schmidt.

"But we wanted to get him off just knowing what we've got coming with the have a six-day turnaround.

"It was a really good opportunity for Jack Conan to get out there.

"He was initially planned to start against Italy. So he did a good job.

"I think Rob Kearney will be a really good chance. He just had calf tightness yesterday. It gave Jordan an opportunity to come in today.

"Look, I'd be surprised if Rob wasn't training on Tuesday, or Wednesday, depending on when we next train. That will depend how the recovery goes, tomorrow and Tuesday."

Henshaw, who hasn't played since the England match six weeks ago, has "less of a chance" with his dead leg healing slower than expected.

"It's just unfortunately lingered. It's a long, long time ago since I played but I had one.

"And in some situations it's almost impossible to get rid of it fast.

"You just have to let it recover in its own time."
