Connacht have suffered a setback after it was confirmed that centre Dave McSharry suffered a grade 2 PCL tear to his knee during a training session.

The 25-year-old, who played for the Irish Wolfhounds in 2013, is expected to be out for between eight to ten weeks, which means his PRO12 season is over.

In other injury news coming from the province, number eight Eoin McKeon suffered a concussion in their match against Munster at Thomond Park. 

"He failed the pitch side concussion test and will be required to undergo the HIA return-to-play protocols this week. His progress will be monitored ahead of the team departure for Gloucester on Thursday," read a statement as Connacht prepare for their Challenge Cup showdown against the Cherry and Whites.

"Centre Conor Finn sustained a knee injury during the second-half (against Munster). The 22-year-old is due to undergo a MRI scan later today (Monday) to determine the extent of the damage and an update will be provided during the week."
