Ireland Star Set To Pay The Ultimate Price Following Poor Performance Against Italy

Dropped.

Leinster hooker Sean Cronin looks set to pay the ultimate price after a poor showing in his first ever Six Nations start against Italy in Rome a fortnight ago.

The veteran front-row, who has amassed over 60 caps playing for Ireland, looks set to miss out on the Ireland squad for the France game when it’s named today, according to a report in The42.ie.

Cronin’s lineout didn’t quite function in Rome, and resulted in him being replaced early in the second-half by Munster hooker Niall Scannell. The 32-year-old was absent from Ireland’s training camp in Belfast last week, having been released to Leinster and now looks set to stay with his province.

Ulster hooker Rob Herring looks set to be called up in his place.
