Ireland have issued an injury update as they begin preparations this week for Sunday’s clash with France at the Aviva Stadium.
There are a number of injury concerns surrounding the Irish squad and the IRFU have addressed these in their latest update.
Robbie Henshaw, who has been missing since he started at fullback against England in the opening round, is “improving more slowly than hoped” from the dead leg which has ruled him out of the last couple of weeks. Henshaw will continue his rehab this week.
Joey Carbery is “progressing well” through his hamstring rehab. The Munster out-half picked up a strain in the build-up to the Italy game and he will be managed across the early part of this week.
There is better news on Andrew Conway. The Munster winger has fully recovered from cramp which he suffered after the win over Italy.
With regards to Dan Leavy, who has yet to see any Six Nations minutes in this campaign thus far, he will continue to increase his “running volume” outside of team training this week.
Ireland have reported no further injury concerns but more should be known on the aforementioned players when a member of Ireland’s coaching staff speaks to the media on Wednesday.
