Irish Fans Devastated As Sean O'Brien Suffers Broken Arm Against Pumas

With one eye inevitably on the arrival of the All Blacks next weekend, there was an outpouring of sadness among Irish fans as Sean O'Brien suffered yet another injury set-back. After so many false starts, the Leinster man may now be set to miss yet another landmark game.

Picked by Joe Schmidt for today's Autumn International against the travelling Argentina, the Leinster man didn't make it as far as the half-way mark; escorted off the field just before the 40-minute mark with a suspected shoulder injury.

Missing Ireland's Grand Slam triumph and Leinster's run to Champions Cup success already this year, this latest set-back had viewers desperate to know what the Carlow man could have done to have such rotten luck.

One of Ireland's most devastating talents on his day, the potential absence of Sean O'Brien in one week's time may not hamper Ireland's chances of overcoming the All Blacks detrimentally, but he would certainly be missed.

After a cagey defeat of Argentina in the Aviva Stadium, Joe Schmidt confirmed that O'Brien had suffered a broken arm, and would require surgery.
