Garry Ringrose to miss start of Six Nations

Garry Ringrose to miss start of Six Nations”

Leinster Senior coach Stuart Lancaster says it is harsh on Ringrose, who only recently returned from shoulder surgery.

There was slightly more encouraging news on the fitness of Tadhg Furlong who was withdrawn for a Head Injury Assessment at half-time of Saturday's game, but an elbow problem he picked up against the northern province will be assessed later in the week.

The 22-year-old is expected to be out of action for around six weeks.

Ringrose, who appeared on The Hard Yards rugby podcast last month, had been working his way back to his fleet-footed best having played against each of Exeter, Connacht and Ulster but is now going to sit out what looks like at least two of Ireland's Six Nations games.

Furlong is also receiving treatment on an elbow injury, but has yet to be ruled out for the weekend's clash with Glasgow.

Ireland are scheduled to open their 2018 campaign against France in Paris in a little under four weeks, before hosting Italy on February 10.

While recent absentees Sean O'Brien, Joey Carbery and James Ryan have a chance of facing the Scots on Sunday, Leo Cullen will be without hooker James Tracy for up to five weeks.

The incident happened during the first-half of the win over Ulster, causing his immediate removal in the 27th minute.

Once again, fingers crossed the severity of the injury is only minimal and he he may make his return before the commencement of the Six Nations in early February.

He made his Ireland debut against Canada in November of 2011 and was used sparingly as a replacement against Fiji, for 24 minutes, and against Argentina, for five minutes, in November.

Adam Byrne will also miss the game and is due to see a specialist for a knee injury later this week.
