    6 Nations 2013 injury watch

    The match threads fill up pretty fast so perhaps we can have a thread to keep track of the 6 countries on who's injured. Any casualties from yesterday's games?

      For France, Vincent Clerc, Brice Dulin, and Wenceslas Lauret are hurted for first match.

      It's maybe a good new for Dulin, he had problems with his adductors for many weeks, and his performances were reduced. He will can repose, and come back better.

        Only possible cause for concern for Irish players after yesterday was reported to be Darcy, who is due to have a scan as a precaution. Otherwise clean bill of health and no major issues (I'm paraphrasing what McGurk said on RTE immediately after the game).
        Tis but a scratch.

          I'd imagine Ross has to be a concern.

            They said he wasn't (as in he was mentioned specifically) but of course there's always the possibility that could be spin I suppose.

                Centre Keith Earls is Ireland’s biggest injury concern after Saturday’s 22-30 victory over Wales and will see a specialist later in the week for a shoulder injury sustained late in the game.

                There were several other niggles picked up in the bruising encounter but the outlook is positive for most ahead of next weekend’s crucial showdown with England.

                Captain Jamie Heaslip suffered a cut to his leg but is expected to be available for training on Tuesday morning for the first squad session of the week.

                Gordon D'Arcy sustained a dead leg during the game and was replaced, but is recovering well and is expected to return to training later this week as well.

                Brian O'Driscoll had several stitches inserted in a head wound, but will be available to train as will prop Mike Ross, who came off during the match due to severe calf cramp.

                Full back Rob Kearney reported stiffness in his back after the game and underwent a precautionary scan, which reported no injury and he will be available for training.

                Peter O'Mahony took a bang to the head, but felt no ill effects after the game and will follow the graded return to play protocols this week.

                Meanwhile England are hopeful powerhouse centre Manu Tuilagi will be back in time to line out against Ireland at the Aviva Stadium next Sunday.

                Orn desh, dee born desh, de umn bork! bork! bork!

                  The Earl is not blessed with the best of luck fitness wise. Ross doesn't sound too bad, hope he is chomping on his bananas this week as he owes England one and I would really fancy him to tuck into Marler . Can't work out what the chances are of Tuilagi being fit but if he can't get hold of the ball his size becomes a liability defensively as we saw with the Welsh behemoths in the first half on saturday.

                    Pascale Papé went off injured during the Italy game. He looks doubtful for the Wales game. Sounds like a back problem that extends down one of his legs also.

                      What's this about Corbisiero being out for the entire tournament?

                        Knee problem, could be the end of his career I read in the Torygraph.

                          Jaysus glad he won't be there against us, but genuinely sorry to hear that if it is that serious.

                            Papé is remplaced by Suta.

                              Tuilagi declared fit. Morgan probably out
