Bad to worse.

Things have gone from bad to worse for Ireland following their shock defeat to Japan at the Rugby World Cup this morning with news that Jack Conan’s World Cup is over.

Conan hurt his foot earlier in the week and was spotted wearing a protective boot this morning ahead of their clash with Japan.
