IRELAND’S BID FOR a Six Nations hat-trick took a hit last night as Tommy Bowe ruled himself out of the championship.

The Ulster wing, who has been rehabbing the cruciate ligament injury that ended his World Cup, admitted that he is fighting a losing battle.

“Unfortunately it’s a slow process and to rule yourself out of the Six Nations is disappointing,” Bowe told BBC Sport.

I have to concentrate on getting myself back to where I was and there’s no point in rushing it.

“To be back by the start of February is unlikely but I’m still pretty positive I can add something to Ulster’s season.”

Joe Schmidt’s side begin their campaign at home to Wales on 7 February.
