Blow For Leinster As Ireland International Ruled Out For Rest Of Season

Man down.

Leinster will be without the services of Ireland international winger Fergus McFadden for the rest of the season, following a hamstring injury picked up in their semi-final win over Scarlets.

McFadden picked up the injury just before half-time, and was replaced by youngster Jordan Larmour. His absence means Leo Cullen will now have to reshuffle his backline ahead of their huge Champions Cup final clash with Racing 92.

But the good news is scrumhalf Luke McGrath is in line to be fit for this weekend’s final, allowing Cullen to bring James Lowe back in to replace McFadden with Jamison Gibson-Park likely to drop out.

McFadden will also miss Leinster’s PRO14 semi-final with Munster next week, as well as a potential final if they get past their provincial rivals.
