Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt has insisted Johnny Sexton will benice to face Samoa despite the fly-half icing his troublesome thigh after being pulled at the 35-0 win over Russia.
Jack Carty for the second half of his sides five-try defeat of these Bears captained Ireland for the very first time but substituted sexton.
Irish and british Lions fly-half Sexton had announced himself after missing Irelands shock 19-12 loss to Japan 100 percent fit to take.
But Schmidt considers Sexton is going to be all set for the final Pool A encounter in Fukuoka on Saturday of Ireland, October 12.
Schmidt expects both guys to be prepared for the Samoans, although joey Carbery had been a late withdrawal, using endured another criticism.
Johnnys all good and will be fine for Samoa, and Joey is good, Schmidt explained after the victory over Russia.
I think Joey would have been okay to perform, however, Conor Murray was very keen to perform with. So Joey is fine
As Ireland secured a vital win over 25, Garry Ringrose, Peter OMahony, Rhys Ruddock, Andrew Conway and rob Kearney spanned.
The victory puts Ireland back on track for the quarter-finals, with a win over Samoa that is needed to be eligible for the last eight.
Jordi Murphy lasted only 26 minutes with a rib problem before departing, with arrived to substitute the injured Jack Conan.
Before understanding hell return to fitness ireland will now await an upgrade on the Ulster superstar.
Jordi only got thrown into the ribs, so he may have popped a rib there. We are going to have out him, said Schmidt. So well see what that comes like.
And Rob Kearney I believe hes alright, again we are going to provide him 50 or even 60, therefore making the shift when we did, he just felt a little bit tight at the groin. We felt it was about time to shoot off him anyway.
Kearney raced in the quickest-ever World Cup of Ireland attempt using a Schmidt set-play drawing on instant dividend, after just 90 seconds.
Ireland laboured through the competition, always very likely to secure the bonus-point triumph but which makes hard work of their objective.
Schmidts men have prior to confronting Samoa nine days, together using Ireland doubtless keen to break some weary bodies.
Despite some frustrations, Schmidt insisted he remains content with Irelands situation, with his side capable to leading Pool A to Japan despite their shock loss.
I really dont think we lost our way from Russia we just didnt convert a few chances, explained Schmidt.
I think there were more things that pleased me than disappointed me undoubtedly. We started again, together with two tries.
Then we left a little hard labour of it. Among the strategies we had was to attempt if we could to find. Because the more the game goes here the moisture theres on the ball, on the floor and on the air, so we knew it would get more challenging as time moved on.
That was probably a little bit of consternation in that next quarter.
Then likely to complete with the best try of the night in the end. Simply to get that 35-point differential and keep a clean sheet.
