Ulster Issue Update On Injured Players

Ulster’s 14-7 GUINNESS PRO12 win over Edinburgh at Kingspan Stadium on Friday night came at a cost, with Dan Tuohy, Iain Henderson, Peter Nelson and Darren Cave all picking up injuries.

Dan Tuohy fractured his right ankle and suffered ligament damage. He will be reviewed by a surgeon tomorrow to ascertain whether surgery is required. The injury will rule the Ireland lock out for at least two months.

Peter Nelson dislocated his left midfoot. It was relocated in the medical room at Kingspan Stadium and he was admitted into the Ulster Independent Clinic overnight on Friday. He is now at home and will have scheduled surgery when the swelling subsides. This is unfortunately a season-ending injury for the versatile young back.

Iain Henderson suffered a significant hamstring tear (left leg). He will be reviewed by a surgeon and his ongoing management and prognosis will be clearer after this consultation has taken place.

Fellow Ireland international Darren Cave suffered an AC joint (right shoulder) injury. His recovery will be managed on an ongoing basis but he will be ruled out for a minimum of two games.

Meanwhile, Roger Wilson had a back spasm on Friday and was withdrawn from the matchday squad as a result. The injury has settled well and he is expected to be available for selection for the European Champions Cup round 3 match against Toulouse this Friday.
