Leinster and Ireland will be without tighthead Marty Moore for 12 weeks due to a shoulder injury, forwards coach Leo Cullen has confirmed.
Moore suffered the injury at Zebre after taking contact with scrum-half Guglielmo Palazzani, Cullen informed the media regarding the issue.
“(Marty) got a bang on his shoulder,” Cullen said.
“He’s with a specialist at the moment but it looks like he’ll probably be out for around 12 weeks. It’s tough on Marty. He’s been going really, really well for us, worked very hard over pre-season to get himself in good shape. It’s going to be a big loss.
“I’m not too sure whatever way he twisted his shoulder in the contact. It’s definitely a bit of a loss, but he was just carrying the ball in to contact.”
