After picking up a shoulder injury in Leinster Rugby’s 39-10 win over Edinburgh at the RDS Arena on Friday night, Josh van der Flier has been left out of the Ireland training squad for Round 3 of the Six Nations. An update on his fitness is expected in the coming days.

Ireland face France in Aviva Stadium next Saturday knowing a win will keep them in the hunt for the Championship, with pace-setters England topping the table after the first two rounds.
