Ireland Issue Injury Update Ahead Of Grand Slam Clash With England

Clean bill of health.

The Ireland squad reassembled at its Maynooth base late yesterday evening, following their bonus-point win over Scotland at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Saturday afternoon.

The good news is there are now injury concerns ahead of their crucial Grand Slam clash with England on Saturday. Ireland also clarified that Cian Healy picked up a shoulder problem, and not a concussion-related injury. He will train fully this week.

“There are the usual bumps and bruises that occur following a Test match but the full squad of 36 players are available for selection this week.”

“Cian Healy suffered a stinger-like injury to the shoulder/trapezius area. He experienced some discomfort on the field and received the appropriate treatment. Cian will train fully this week.”

Super news. Now bring on England.
