Two Ireland players ruled out of the Six Nations

  • Andrew Trimble will miss the last two matches in the Six Nations
  • The 32-year-old broke a bone in his hand during Ulster’s Pro12 win over Treviso
  • Tommy Bowe has been drafted into the Irish camp
Ireland wing Andrew Trimble has been ruled out of the rest of the Six Nations after he injured his hand in Ulster’s win over Treviso in Belfast on Friday.

The 70-Test veteran broke a bone in his hand in his side’s 19-7 triumph and will miss the upcoming matches against Wales and England.


Ireland must also do without Connacht lock Ultan Dillane, who will be sidelined for at least two months after undergoing shoulder surgery.

Head coach Joe Schmidt will now hope to have stalwart full-back Rob Kearney back in full training on Monday.
