Ulster’s captain suspended for three weeks after red card against Ospreys in Pro14
A week before the match against Italy in Dublin, Andy Farrell and Ireland had a lot of uncertainties. Second, Ian Henderson will also orphan the national team at Trefoil. Ulster’s captain was, of course Banned for three weeks A red card follows in Pro14 against Ospreys. For him, the Six Nations ends here, and he will return to the national team only for the Autumn Nation Cup.
Henderson’s absence adds to the three players who have already been ruled out due to injury, all from Leinster to those injured in Monigo’s battle against Beniton: Max Deacon breaks his cruciate ligament, and Jordan Larmer Expected from a surgical operation He will be out for a while and even second-row Ryan Baird will not be able to join the Irish group.
In addition to these setbacks, Ireland will face some ailments to assess next week, but this will definitely prevent players from reaching 100% of the match. Thaddeus Furlong is unlikely: the right prop is being treated by Leinster medical staff, while his replacement Andrew Porter is retiring.
Porter will not train before Monday, but his condition will need to be assessed later to see if he can compete. Hookers are similar to Ronan Keller and Johnny Sexton: the goal is to get them into training from the new week.
Munster’s Peter O’Malley and Chris Farrell will also be out until next Monday. The two are closely related to one of the Kovid-19 cases found in the Limerick franchise, and the expected isolation period should end.
Meanwhile, Farrell called up the second line of Connach Altan Dillane.
