Injury update following the win over Benetton Treviso at the RDS Arena last Saturday.

Josh van der Flier saw a specialist on Monday having injured his ankle against Ulster (syndesmosis) and following further review it was decided that Josh should have an operation to repair the damage.

He had surgery yesterday and it was a success but he will be out for eight weeks and will miss next Friday’s Guinness PRO12 semi-final against Ulster at the RDS Arena.

Rob Kearney (ankle) and Johnny Sexton (quad) were both withdrawn against Benetton Treviso for precautionary reasons but are making good progress from both injuries.
