Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
Leinster have confirmed fullback Jordan Larmour will miss Ireland’s remaining Six Nations 2020 games as well as the Autumn Nations Cup after he dislocated his shoulder against Benetton at the weekend.
Larmour received oxygen in the second-half following an awkward tackle and looked to be in quite some discomfort. He’s now expected to be out of action for around 12 weeks.
Whether or not Andy Farrell will call up a replacement remains to be seen.
Here’s the Leinster injury update in full with updates on Baird, Deegan, Kelleher, Porter, Sexton and Furlong too.
Ryan Baird: was withdrawn from the game against Benetton Rugby with an adductor strain. He will be further assessed this week by the Leinster Rugby medical team.
Jordan Larmour: was withdrawn against Benetton Rugby with a dislocated shoulder and will have a procedure this week. We will have an appreciation of his return to play prognosis after the surgery but he will be unavailable for the upcoming Guinness Six Nations and Autumn Nations Cup.
Max Deegan: suffered an ACL knee injury against Dragons at the RDS Arena and had a procedure last week which went well. Max will be unavailable for a number of months.
Rónan Kelleher (quad), Andrew Porter (hamstring), Johnny Sexton (hamstring): will all be assessed by the IRFU medical team this week.
Tadhg Furlong: will remain under the supervision of the Leinster Rugby S&C and medical team this week as he recovers from a calf issue.
