First we lost Tommy O’Donnell, and now this….
There’s more bad news coming out of the Irish camp following last weekend’s victory over Wales. Although the manner of the victory was satisfying, it has come at a cost with Andrew Trimble struggling with a nasty foot injury.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference ahead of the clash with Scotland this weekend, Ireland kicking coach, Richie Murphy, confirmed that the foot injury suffered at the weekend has ruled Trimble out of the Scotland game.
“He is going for another scan tomorrow. Until we see what the result of that scan is we can’t really give you any further information.”
It is a source of concern because he has a sore foot. We’ll have to see where that is at.”
The Ulster winger was superb in the 35-21 victory over Warren Gatland’s side, and is a key asset to Joe Schmidt’s side. Ireland fans worldwide will be hoping he makes a speedy recovery given his previous battles with injury.
Schmidt will cut more players from the Irish squad on Wednesday, as he whittles it down to that all-important 31.
