Ireland scrum-half ruled out of Six Nations with knee injury

Ireland scrum-half Luke McGrath will miss the Six Nations after being ruled out for up to eight weeks with a knee ligament injury.

The Leinster man hobbled off during the province’s 29-13 win over Toulouse on Saturday.

Scrum-halves John Cooney and Kieran Marmion are also currently nursing injuries but could return in time for the tournament opener.

Ireland host England on 2 February in their opening game.
