More injury woes for Carbery


Munster and Ireland out-half Joey Carbery faces another spell on the sidelines after it was revealed that he requires surgery on a wrist injury sustained in the province’s 38-17 defeat to Ulster last weekend.

The former Leinster man is now a serious doubt for the opening two fixtures of the Six Nations after a scan revealed that he had suffered ligament damage and would require surgery.

It is the latest in series of injury woes for the versatile back who has just returned from an ankle problem which kept him out of the first few months of the current campaign.

It is a major headache for Munster head coach Johann van Graan ahead of this weekend’s crucial Champions Cup clash with Racing 92 in Paris.

Winger Andrew Conway is being monitored after departing the Ulster game early with a neck problem, while Tadgh Beirne is in the early stages of recovery following surgery for a broken ankle.

However, Niall Scannell is back in full training after suffering cramp at the Kingspan Stadium and is likely to be available for selection.
