Ireland Dealt Further Blow As Another Star Ruled Out Of Six Nations
Connacht’s Ultan Dillane will also miss Ireland’s Six Nations games with Wales and England as he had to undergo surgery to resolve a shoulder problem.
The IRFU has confirmed Dillane’s absence along with Andrew Trimble in a statement which read:
“Andrew Trimble sustained a hand injury against Treviso at the Kingspan Stadium on Friday night and has been ruled out of the final two rounds of the RBS 6 Nations Championship.
“Ultan Dillane will undergo surgery this week for an ongoing shoulder issue. He will be ruled out of action for 8 – 10 weeks.”
Rob Kearney continues to recover from a groin injury and is expected to take part in full training with the Ireland squad on Monday.
Ulster’s Tommy Bowe has been drafted into the squad.
