Further Injury Blow For Ireland Ahead Of Wales Game

Ah feckit.

Ireland are set to be dealt a further blow ahead of this weekend’s crucial Six Nations clash with Wales at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

The men in green are already without the services Robbie Henshaw and Josh van der Flier for the remainder of the tournament. While this weekend will also likely be too soon for Garry Ringrose and Sean O’Brien.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

Then there’s Tadhg Furlong. News broke yesterday that he likely won’t be named in Joe Schmidt’s team later today. Now to top all that off, Iain Henderson also reportedly hasn’t been able to pull through this week, and won’t make the squad.

As a result Devin Toner is set to start, with Connacht’s Quinn Roux brought in for a spot on the bench.
