Report: Garry Ringrose In Danger Of Missing Remainder Of Six Nations
By Gary Connaughton

Ireland may have gotten their 2020 Six Nations campaign off to a winning start yesterday, but the performance against Scotland left plenty to be desired.

It certainly wasn't the most convincing of wins, with Andy Farell sure to be demanding a lot more from his team in the game against the Welsh next weekend. His cause will not be aided by some potential injury worries.

Caelan Doris and Dave Kilcoyne both were taken off due to head injuries, while Tadhg Furlong was removed after suffering cramp.

However, Garry Ringrose will be the main concern. The Leinster centre was substituted at halftime in yesterday's game, with the reason for the switch unknown at the time. It would later emerge that it was a finger injury, with his participation in the rest of the tournament now a major doubt.

The Irish Independent report that Ringrose has suffered a suspected broken finger, as confirmed by scans late last night. He looks certain to miss the Wales and England games, while a return against Italy or France is far from certain.

Depending on the severity of the break, he could miss up to two months of action. The IRFU are expected to give an update on the status of Ringrose's injury early next week.
