IRELAND’S PACK HAS been dealt a blow today as Munster second row Dave Foley was been ruled out of the entire Six Nations campaign.

The Tipperary man underwent surgery on a wrist injury yesterday, his province confirmed today and has been ruled out for three months.

Foley made his international debut in November, earning a man-of-the-match award against Georgia.

The Tipperary man has also been issued a citing warning today, relating to a “dangerous charge” or a tackle without the arms on on Sharks prop Alberto de Marchi in the 16th minute of the Champions Cup pool victory.

Sale’s Viliami Fihaki was also issued a warning by the citing commissioner for an early incident, a “dangerous tackle” on BJ Botha.
