John Ryan back in Ireland camp, Carbery Schmidt's only new injury absence

The Leinster playmaker suffered a fractured wrist and went under the knife yesterday.

MUNSTER PROP JOHN Ryan has returned to Ireland’s training camp in Carton House after missing the win over Fiji with a calf injury.

The tighthead re-joined Joe Schmidt’s squad preparations for the final November Test against Argentina last night. He brings the head coach’s tighthead options back up to three after both 21-year-old Andrew Porter and Tadhg Furlong played a part in the 23 – 20 win over the Pacific islanders.

With only ‘bumps and bruises’ reported for 22 of the men who played on Saturday, the union’s medics confirmed a fractured wrist for Joey Carbery.

The Leinster playmaker is understood to have undergone surgery on the issue yesterday and will be out until the New Year.

The42 has just published its first book, Behind The Lines, a collection of some of the year’s best sports stories. Pick up your copy in Eason’s, or order it here today (€10):
