Another Ireland star will miss the Rugby World Cup after surgery

Ireland centre Will Addison looks set to follow in Dan Leavy’s footsteps and miss the Rugby World Cup in Japan later this year after undergoing back surgery.

The 26-year-old moved from Sale over the summer to declare for Ireland and made his debut in the November internationals, impressing at 13 against Argentina after Robbie Henshaw was a late withdrawal.

But he missed out on the Six Nations through injury and now has been forced to go under the knife to correct a back problem.
