Leinster and Ireland have been handed a devastating injury blow ahead of the season restart with lock James Ryan set to be out of action for up to three months.
Ryan suffered a shoulder injury in training before the recent break and had a procedure to address the issue. He will be out of action for up to 10-12 weeks.
The injury means he will likely miss the remainder of Leinster’s PRO14 and Champions Cup campaign and Ireland’s 2020 Six Nations fixtures against Italy and France.
Winger Adam Byrne will also be out of action for an extended period. Byrne suffered a hamstring injury and is due to have a procedure this week. He will be out of action for up to 12 weeks.
There is some good news for Leinster and Ireland with soon to be eligible James Lowe returning to training last week having followed all government health advice and guidelines upon his arrival back into the country from New Zealand.
Flanker Dan Leavy is continuing to integrate gradually into rugby training after a significant multi-ligament knee injury and looks set to be back in action before long.
