Ulster rack up the injuries
Rugby:Ulster coach Mark Anscombe has some serious injury concerns in the wake of the victory over the Scarlets for next Friday’s Heineken Cup clash with the Glasgow Warriors at Ravenhill.
Dan Tuohy, who tore a calf muscle against the Northampton Saints in the province’s last European outing in December, appeared to suffer a recurrence in his comeback game. The Irish secondrow limped out of the game.
Centre Luke Marshall suffered damage to a finger and he was replaced by Paddy Wallace. Fullback Adam D’Arcy also retired injured and this compounds an issue for Anscombe who must now await a medical prognosis on first choice Jared Payne, who missed the Scarlets’ game.
The Ulster coach admitted in speaking first about Tuohy: “It’s not looking good. It’s the same leg/calf injury so that’s got to be a concern. Luke Marshall is also a real concern as is Jared (Payne).”
