Moore To Be Sidelined For ‘Up To Four Weeks’

Moore To Be Sidelined For ‘Up To Four Weeks’

After training in UCD this afternoon, Leinster head coach Leo Cullen has given an update on the well being of a number of squad members.

Martin Moore underwent surgery last Friday on a foot injury and is expected to be sidelined for up to four weeks, while fellow forwards Mick Kearney (foot) and Rhys Ruddock (arm) are nearing a return to action but a return in round 3 of the GUINNESS PRO12 is more realistic for them both.

Tom Denton and stand-in captain Kevin McLaughlin were both removed from the game against Edinburgh as a result of knocks to the head and are now following the graduated return-to-play protocols. Both are progressing well but a final call will not be made until later in the week.

Gordon D’Arcy is seeing a specialist this week on a shoulder injury that he had scanned last week and is ruled out of Saturday’s clash with Cardiff Blues as a result.

Meanwhile, Isa Nacewa did not train yesterday but took a full part today and is expected to be fit for the first home game of the season at the RDS.
