Leinster Centre Brian O’Driscoll has said that the news of Leinster teammate Eoin O’Malley is ‘absolutely brutal’.

O’Driscoll was one of the first Leinster players to come out and wish 25-year-old O’Malley all the best and pay tribute to his contribution to the province.

Former Leinster teammate Fionn Carr, who is now with Connacht, said that he was crestfallen to hear of O’Malley’s early retirement. “We are good friends,” said Carr. “We knew things were really tough for him with his injury and recovery attempts. All the Leinster lads were hoping for the best so to hear he is retiring is really unfortunate.

“I played with him a good few times at Leinster. He was a fantastic player; very good at reading the game and he had a great pass on him.”
