The Ireland camp have released a statement confirming that Rob Kearney may miss the game against England in a fortnight’s time.
The team doctor explained, “Kearney injured his right knee during the first half of the game with France and was forced to leave the field. He had a scan on his knee on Sunday afternoon and it has confirmed a strain to his medial ligament.”
“Kearney will undergo rehabilitation, but is considered doubtful for the game against England in Twickenham.”
Brian O’Driscoll also took a blow to his knee, but the camp are “optimistic that he will be available for the England game.”
