O Brien ruled out for up to 6 months with shoulder injury

Leinster coach Matt O’Connor has described as “a nightmare” the news that Sean O’Brien is out for up to 6 months.

The Carlow man is to have shoulder reconstruction surgery tomorrow.

O’Brien will miss all of Leinster’s Champions Cup pool stage games, and much like Cian Healy will face a race to be fit for Ireland’s Six Nations campaign.
