Blow For Leinster As Joe Tomane Suffers Serious Injury

Crocked.

Following a short break, the Leinster Rugby team reported back for training yesterday at their UCD base ahead of the return of Guinness PRO14 action tomorrow week as they welcome the Ospreys to the RDS Arena.

As Head Coach Leo Cullen welcomed back his players he also gave a short injury update on two players that picked up injuries in the last game against the Southern Kings.

Unfortunately Australian international Joe Tomane had a procedure this week to repair his hamstring injured in that game and he will be out of action for up to five months.

There was also an update on Rory O’Loughlin who sustained a knee ligament injury in the same game and is going through a period of rehabilitation. However the outlook for O’Loughlin is more positive and he is not expected to be out for long and a further update will be provided next week.

Whether or not this means Leinster may look to bring someone in on short-term deal remains to be seen.
