The IRFU have confirmed that Garry Ringrose will miss Ireland’s massive Guinness Six Nations games against Wales and England after suffering a hand injury in the opening round win over Scotland.


There is also doubt surrounding Tadhg Furlong, with the prop reporting tightness in his calf towards the end of Saturday’s 19-12 win.

Ringrose picked up his hand injury in the first half against Scotland, and the IRFU have confirmed he has now had a procedure which will rule him out of this weekend’s home clash against Wales and the trip to face England on February 23.

Ringrose is expected to be back in action in time for the round 4 home game against Italy on March 7.

Fulrong is due to be monitored during across the week, and has yet to be officially ruled out of the Wales game.


Meanwhile, the IRFU have also confirmed that development players Ryan Baird (Leinster), Robert Baloucoune (Ulster) and Harry Byrne (Leinster) have all returned to their provinces, while Leinster flanker Will Connors has been added to Andy Farrell’s main squad.
