Ireland centre Gordon D'Arcy has been ruled out of the rest of the Six Nations due to a stress injury in his right foot.
D'Arcy was experiencing some discomfort in his right foot following the game against England. This failed to settle down before the Ireland training session on Thursday and following a scan on that afternoon it was confirmed that the Wexford man has a stress injury to a bone in his foot.
The injury will require immobilisation in a boot for at least four weeks with a projected return to play of six weeks pending further tests and specialist review.
The Ireland training squad for the Scotland test match week will be announced on Sunday evening following the completion of games in the RaboDirect Pro12.
