McGrath out for up to six weeks


Jack McGrath will miss Leinster's back-to-back Heineken Champions Cup games against Bath after undergoing an operation on his hip.

McGrath underwent a procedure last week and the prop is expected to be sidelined for between four-to-six weeks, which could see him miss the games against Toulouse and Wasps in January.

While the loss of McGrath is a blow, Jack Conan, Rory O'Loughlin, Dan Leavy and Jordan Larmour could all return this week, but Nick McCarthy is likely to miss out due to a foot injury.
