Ireland back-rower ruled out of Rugby World Cup

Leinster have confirmed that flanker Dan Leavy has been ruled out of the World Cup following an injury sustained against Ulster in the Champions Cup.

Leavy was stretchered off with what has been revealed as a ‘complex knee ligament injury’, which will sideline him for a lengthy period.

A statement on Twitter said: “Leinster Rugby can confirm that Dan Leavy had an initial scan yesterday on a complex knee ligament injury but needs further assessment this week.

“He has been ruled out for the remainder of the season and into next season to include the Rugby World Cup.”
