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.
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.
Expected Ireland Team vs Wales
Rory Best (Captain)
Replacements: Niall Scannell, Jack McGrath, John Ryan, Quinn Roux, Jack Conan, Kieran Marmion, Joey Carbery, Fergus McFadden.
