CJ Stander’s Six Nations may be over after playing on with HORRENDOUS injuries

Ireland’s CJ Stander is doubtful to feature in the rest of the Six Nations after playing on with fractures in his cheek and eye socket.

South African Olympic and world champion Ryk Neethling, who is Stander’s brother in law, was in attendance yesterday and following the match he tweeted a photo with Stander, saying: “Not the result we wanted but an incredible experience nonetheless and proud of @CJStander playing 62 mins with two fractures in his cheek and eye socket.”

The injuries will almost certainly rule Stander out for the rest of the Six Nations campaign and make him a doubt for Munster’s Champions Cup quarter final against Edinburgh at the end of March.

The Grand Slam champions went down 32-20 to a rampant England in a bruising encounter at the Aviva Stadium.
