Ireland Hit With Six Nations Injury Blow

Ireland’s Six Nations campaign has been dealt a blow with news that Andrew Trimble will miss the final two rounds.

The winger has broken a bone in his hand.

The 32-year-old suffered the injury during Ulster’s Pro12 win over Treviso in Belfast on Friday evening.

It rules him out of the 10 March match against Wales in Cardiff and the final game at home to England eight days later.

Trimble said he aimed to be back to help Ulster in their attempt to win a place in the Pro12 play-offs.
