Battered and bruised.
Ireland were dealt and absolute major Rugby World Cup blow today at Twickenham – with England demolishing them 57-15 in a humiliating defeat.
Joe Schmidt’s men started well but absolutely crumbled after Jordan Larmour scored the first try of the game after eight minutes. And to make matters worse picked up two very worrying injuries.
Conor Murray appeared to be knocked out in the first half, while Cian Healy picked up a worrying ankle injury. But Schmidt allayed some fears after the game with a positive update.
Murray passed his HIA but was taken off as a precaution. Healy meanwhile sprained his ankle but early scans show it was “normal” meaning there was no break. A bit of light at the end of the tunnel…
A worrying sight for Ireland ahead of the Rugby World Cup…
Cian Healy limps off the field as the referee brings the half to a close, England currently lead Ireland 22-10 at Twickenham.
