Bad news for Ireland as star suffers fresh injury concern
Lions flanker Seán O’Brien’s comeback from injury lasted less than half an hour before he went off injured in Leinster’s refixed Guinness Pro 14 clash with the Llanelli Scarlets in Wales on Friday night.
The powerful back-rower captained Leinster on his return from a hip injury at Parc y Scarlets in the battle of the top two teams in Conference B.
A tight affair played in tough conditions was still scoreless when O’Brien was replaced by Max Deegan after 27 minutes, with the early signs pointing to a left arm or shoulder injury.
The teams went onto share the spoils, drawing 10-10.
