Ruddock’s broken arm an RWC worry

Date published: June 18 2015

Ireland flanker Rhys Ruddock could miss this year's Rugby World Cup after suffering another arm injury.

Ruddock picked up a possible broken arm while captaining Emerging Ireland during their win over Uruguay in the Tbilisi Cup in Georgia.

The same injury kept Ruddock out of this year's Six Nations, when Ireland lifted the title.

Ruddock is now awaiting X-ray results to determine the seriousness of his injury and whether it will affect his chances of making the World Cup.

The 24-year-old made his Test debut in 2010 against Australia and has since won five caps for Ireland.
