Ireland will be without hooker Rory Best for Saturday's game against South Africa in Dublin.

Best is currently nursing a calf strain and a statement from the Irish Rugby Football Union said: "He is partaking in modified training but a decision has been made not to risk him this weekend and his progress will continue to be monitored."

With Best sidelined, Leinster duo Richardt Strauss and Sean Cronin are likely to compete for the starting spot.
