The All Blacks winger Julian Savea was back at training and appears set to play in Monday morning's rugby international against Ireland in Dublin.

Savea left training on Saturday with a knee injury, but returned with no obvious signs of discomfort.

Captain Richie McCaw says he expects Savea to play.

The All Blacks are chasing a perfect season with a win over Ireland at Lansdowne Road.
