Dan Leavy facing two months out with latest injury headache

Dan Leavy's luckless run with injuries has continued. 

Leinster confirmed on Tuesday that the flanker will be missing for at least two months with a wrist injury.

Leavy underwent a procedure to stabilise a fracture in the joint, and his absence puts paid to any hopes of a return to the Ireland fold for the Six Nations.

The 27-year old's horrific few years with injuries began in March of 2019 when he sustained a serious knee injury in a PRO14 game with Ulster. It took 18-months for Leavy to return, and he was condemned to the treatment room just four-months later with a knee cartilage issue.

Leavy only returned to action in the autumn, and the wrist injury is Leinster's major injury update ahead of Sunday's Heineken Champions Cup visit of Montpellier to the RDS.

They've also revealed that two players are currently isolating as a result of COVID-19. One of those is a close contact. That follows the latest round of PCR testing which took place on Monday.

Leinster's last scheduled outing in Europe resulted in a 28-0 bonus point walkover for Montpellier, with an independent Match Risk Assessment Committee deeming that the Blues should not travel to France in December.

Montpellier since suffered a COVID-19 outbreak of their own, resulting in last weekend's Top 14 game with Toulouse being postponed.

They've since returned to training, meaning Sunday's game can go ahead as planned.

Conor O’Brien (hamstring), Dave Kearney (back) and Michael Milne (calf) remain long-term injury absentees for Leo Cullen's side.
