Joey Carbery got a proper introduction to Fijian rugby on Saturday, as first centre Jale Vatubua put a massive shot on him in the opening minutes, then in the second half prop Peni Ravai made another.
Unfortunately, due to the second hit, the 22-year-old faces a spell on the sidelines with what head coach Joe Schmidt reckons is a broken arm.
“I think he’s fractured his left forearm,” said the head coach.
“It’s undisplaced [sic] as far as I know and we’ll update it on Monday.
“I can’t absolutely confirm that but that appears to be the case. That will mean he won’t take any further part in the Guinness Series for us.”
