Leinster coach Leo has revealed that experienced players Sean Cronin and Fergus McFadden will be out of action for a number of weeks due to injury.
Cullen speaking to Leinster Rugby TV about team news and injury updates ahead of the PRO 14 clash with the Dragons this coming Friday confirmed the news. He also revealed that Hugo Keenan picked up an ankle injury and he is to be assessed throughout the week. However, the news wasn’t as positive in regards to Sean Cronin and Fergus McFadden. McFadden is set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury in training. Sean Cronin also picked up an injury to his neck and he will be out action for a couple of weeks.
However, the statement on Leinster Rugby confirmed that Ed Byrne who suffered a neck injury has returned to training. Ciaran Frawley who picked up an ankle injury has also returned to training. Speaking to Leinster Rugby TV, Cullen said, “Ferg is always a very abrasive player for us,”. “He was a little unlucky one day in training, so, hopefully, he won’t be a million miles away.”
He continued, “Ed Byrne is making progress. He’s been a little bit slower than we would have liked with that neck injury.“Ciarán Frawley is back training now so we’ll see him featuring at some point soon, hopefully.“The other one is probably Hugo, he picked up a bang to his ankle at the weekend. It was very late – literally the last minute of the game.
Leinster take on the Dragons on Friday night at 7.35pm.
