Irish forced into changes for Romania match.
October 14, 1999

The withdrawal of David Corkery from the Irish squad and an injury to Eric Miller has forced a reshuffle of the back row for tomorrow's game against Romania
Miller sustained a hamstring injury in training and the two withdrawals mean a return for both Andy Ward and Dion O'Cuinneagain.
The enforced recall of two of the first choice side will certainly strengthen the pack, but may concern Warren Gatland who was hoping to rest the two players before a possible quarter final play off in Lens next week.
O'Cuinneagain's place on the bench goes to Alan Quinlan who has only joined the squad today as a replacement for Corkery. Jeremy Davidson has filled the final place on the bench, left vacant pending the outcome of Trevor Brennan's disciplinary hearing.
The return of O'Cuinneagain means that scrum's Conor O'Shea will lose the captaincy before ever leading the side out.
