Former Leinster Back-Row Dominic Ryan Stood Down By Leicester Tigers
Former Leinster flanker Dominic Ryan has been stood down by Leicester Tigers.
The Irishman suffered a controversial head injury in the win over Harlequins in Round 4, and this couple with a couple of bangs last season, have forced Ryan to take a break from the game.
Ryan, who made the move from Leinster over the summer, has become a regular in the Leicester set-up this season.
“Dom had a couple of head knocks before he got here and then he picked up another one in the game at Quins, so he is being stood him down for three months,” said Tigers head coach Matt O’Connor.
“That is standard procedure at the moment, and we have done it with other players before, but a player’s welfare is paramount and we look forward to having him back to full fitness and available to play after that break.
“It is disappointing because he was settling in well and has a key part to play for us, but it is very important to look after players and he hope to have him back around Christmas.
“We have a good squad and there are options in the back row and we will continue to prepare as well as we possibly can with the players we have.”
