Ankle Surgery Ends Van Der Flier’s Season

Ankle Surgery Ends Van Der Flier’s Season

Leinster have issued an injury update following last Saturday’s win over Benetton Treviso, with young flanker Josh van der Flier set to miss the GUINNESS PRO12 play-offs and Ireland’s upcoming tour to South Africa.

Josh van der Flier saw a specialist on Monday having injured his ankle against Ulster (syndesmosis) and following further review it was decided that he 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 as well as Ireland’s summer tour to South Africa.

Meanwhile, Rob Kearney (ankle) and Jonathan Sexton (quad) were both withdrawn against Benetton Treviso for precautionary reasons but are making good progress from both injuries.
