Brian O'Driscoll: No one saw Ireland's omission of Devin Toner coming

Brian O'Driscoll admits that no one saw Ireland's omission of star lock Devin Toner from their Rugby World Cup squad coming.

Devin Toner has been confirmed as the shock omission from Ireland’s 31-man squad for the Rugby World Cup.

The 33-year-old Leinster lock has numbered among Joe Schmidt’s most trusted lieutenants, starting 50 of the Kiwi head coach’s 67 Test matches as Ireland boss.

But Jean Kleyn has been given the nod ahead of Toner, with boss Schmidt selecting Munster’s South Africa-born star alongside Iain Henderson, James Ryan and Tadhg Beirne in a four-strong lock cordon.
