Leinster Rugby Injury News – Dave Kearney out till October

Dave Kearney will be out of action for the next four or five months as a result of an anterior cruciate ligament tear.

The injury occurred in the second half of the RaboDirect PRO12 play-off against Ulster on Saturday in the RDS and Dave will have surgery in the next week or so.

There was better news for Brian O’Driscoll and Fergus McFadden who were substituted during the same game but they are due back training on Thursday, while Mike McCarthy continues to make good progress and has trained this week.

Eoin Reddan, who won his 100th cap at the weekend, suffered no ill effects from the game against Ulster having returned from a shoulder injury while fellow scrumhalf Isaac Boss has been working on his own recovery from a slight calf injury that kept him out of Saturday’s play-off.
