The Latest Update On Garry Ringrose Is Not What We Initially Expected


Ireland centre Garry Ringrose looks unlikely to feature in the latter rounds of the Six Nations despite an Irish Rugby report that stated otherwise following the win over Scotland.

Ringrose was replaced by Robbie Henshaw at half-time during Ireland’s opening round win over the Scots following a hand injury that ending up requiring surgery.

An Irish Rugby statement on February 3 indicated that Ringrose would likely be available for rounds four and five of the championship against Italy and France respectively but it now appears he will not make it back in time,

Ringrose was not at camp in Cork yesterday and it now looks like Robbie Henshaw will continue to partner Bundee Aki for the remainder of the tournament with the likes of Chris Farrell and Stuart McCloskey waiting in the wings to get some game time too.

Both Farrell and McCloskey have been released to their respective provinces and Farrell will be watching closing this weekend.

“Hopefully, [we’ll see] a vibrant bunch, who’s going to put their hand up and make us take note. We’ll be watching this weekend,” Farrell said.

Will Addison meanwhile, is also sidelined again with a calf problem with the Ulster back also not travelling to Cork.

“Will is not here, in the end, he stayed at home because he is managing a calf, he is not going as well as he thought it would have done at the beginning of the week,” Farrell said yesterday.

“He wasn’t able to train with us Wednesday, Thursday so hopefully, he can get himself right…we didn’t want to travel him down and travel all the way back up from here to Belfast which is a long old journey.

“So Will is still in rehab mound and hopefully, he will be fit for next week’s training but we will see.”
