Keith Earls an injury worry for Ireland

Keith Earls has suffered an ankle injury in a Munster training session in Cork.

The Munster, Ireland and Lions centre/wing pulled up in training, giving rise to fears of a major problem.

While a Munster statement has sought to allay those concerns, significantly it revealed that the exact nature of the injury is not known at this stage.

“The injury occurred in a non-contact situation and a subsequent x-ray revealed no break.

“However Earls will need to undergo further medical examination later in the week to determine the exact extent of the damage,” Munster said.
