Ireland Hit With Massive Injury Blow Ahead Of Six Nations Clash With England

Man down.

Andrew Porter has been ruled out of the remainder of Ireland’s Guinness Six Nations campaign with an ankle injury sustained in the win over Italy last weekend.

The Leinster loosehead prop will miss Ireland’s game against England at Twickenham next weekend, as well as their final game against Scotland at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

The 26-year-old rolled his ankle four minutes into the second half of Ireland’s 57-6 victory over the Azzuri and was replaced shortly afterward by Munster’s Dave Kilcoyne after an unsuccessful attempt to play on.

“Following a scan on his injured ankle, Andrew Porter has been ruled out of the remainder of our #GuinnessSixNations campaign,” the IRFU wrote on Twitter.

“He has returned to Leinster Rugby and his medical treatment will be managed by the Leinster medical team.”

A huge blow for the men in green.
