Key Ireland Player Forced To Withdraw From All Blacks Game

Man down.

Ireland openside flanker Dan Leavy has been forced to pull out of tomorrow’s crucial Test match with world champions New Zealand at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Ireland haven’t released any details on Leavy’s injury, but the Leinster star did miss training in Carton House yesterday, with Joe Schmidt admitting he had ‘all over body soreness’ as they looked to manage his workload.

Josh van der Flier has been promoted to the starting line-up in his absence, with Jordi Murphy now on the replacements bench.
