DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ireland fullback Rob Kearney has a 50-50 chance of playing against Argentina in Dublin on Saturday, scrum coach Greg Feek said on Tuesday.

Kearney suffered a shoulder injury playing for Leinster in the PRO-14 competition in Italy last month and did not travel with an experimental Ireland team to Chicago for last Saturday’s 54-7 win over Italy at Soldier Field.

Feek told a news conference that Kearney was still recovering and working with the team’s medical staff, away from the rest of the squad.

If Kearney is not fit, it will hand another opportunity to 21-year-old Jordan Larmour, who starred against Italy and scored hat-trick of tries.
