The Latest On Dan Leavy As He Continues His Road To Recovery

Long road.

Leinster head coach Leo Cullen says he is under the “impression” that Ireland international Dan Leavy doesn’t require anymore surgery as he continues to recover from a serious knee injury.

But Cullen stressed that it will be a “long road” back for Leavy following the horror injury, using Wales flanker Aaron Shingler as an example, who also tore his ACL.

Shingler came off the bench in Wales’ loss to England on Sunday – his first game of rugby in 15 months.

“He is on the road to recovery,” Cullen said of Leavy.

“I don’t get the impression he needs anything else done. His last operation was the ACL repair. Because he has had other bits going on, it will be a big chunk of time. It is impossible to give any accurate information.

“It is so hard to know [when he’ll be back]. You look at Shingler for Wales. He did his ACL and it was his first game back for over a year.”

“It is going to be a long road for him,”
