The Irish rugby squad for this month's World Cup in Japan has been confirmed, with Devin Toner expected to be the highest profile absentee.

Schmidt's 31 man squad was scheduled to be publicly announced next Sunday, but after details were leaked to the media, the IRFU have now confirmed the squad.

Veteran lock Toner has missed out on selection, with Munster's Jean Kleyn included in his place.

Jack Carty has beaten Ross Byrne to the third outhalf position, while Luke McGrath is chosen in favour of Connacht's Kieran Marmion.

Ulster pair Jordi Murphy and Jack McGrath have also reportedly been left on standby.

There is one change to the squad which had been reported, with Munster centre Chris Farrell chosen over Will Addison.
