GARRY RINGROSE WILL be assessed by the Ireland medical team later in the week, but the knee injury he sustained during Leinster’s Pro12 semi-final defeat to Scarlets is ‘not of concern at this stage.’

The centre went off in the closing stages of the province’s last four clash at the RDS on Friday night but initial concerns over the severity of the knock were eased by Leinster this afternoon.

Ringrose will now link up with the national squad ahead of the summer tour to America and Japan, with Joe Schmidt’s 32-man panel assembling in Carton House on Wednesday.

Rhys Ruddock and Luke McGrath will also be monitored by the Irish medics after sustaining head injuries in the disappointing loss to Scarlets.

Both have entered the return to play protocols, according to this afternoon’s injury update issued by Leo Cullen.

Ireland travel to New Jersey on 5 June ahead of the opening Test match against USA Eagles before flying to Japan for two Tests against the hosts.
