Boss and Ryan sustain injuries


Rugby:Isaac Boss and Dominic Ryan are both doubtful for Leinster’s RaboDirect Pro12 game against Newport Gwent Dragons this Saturday following injuries sustained in the heavy defeat to the Scarlets at the weekend.

Ireland scrumhalf Boss sat out training today after hyper-extending his elbow during the first half in Llanelli and he will continue to be monitored by the medical team ahead of Friday’s midday team announcement. Ryan, meanwhile, rolled over his right ankle and underwent a scan this morning with results not yet available.

Hookers Richardt Strauss (stinger) and Aaron Dundon (cut above his left eye which required stitches) and wing Fionn Carr (nose) also suffered knocks but the management remain hopeful that all three will be available.

Leo Cullen and South African signing Quinn Roux are set to be added to the panel. Ian Madigan also became the latest player to pass the half century mark. It is anticipated that the international contingent will be available for selection over rounds three and four of the PRO12.
