Ireland centre Robbie Henshaw has been ruled out of the remainder of Ireland's Six Nations campaign after injuring his shoulder against Italy.
The 24-year-old Leinster centre was forced from the field in the 45th minute of Ireland's clash with Italy in Dublin last weekend. Henshaw has already undergone surgery.
Head coach Joe Schmidt will be forced to select another squad member to start along side Connacht's Bundee Aki. With both Jared Payne and Gary Ringrose out injured, Ireland will be down to their fourth choice 13.
Tighthead prop Tadhg Furlong, who also left the field with injury, has suffered a minor hamstring injury and should be fit in time for Ireland's clash with Wales in two weeks time.
Back row Jack Conan was withdrawn at half time after taking a knock to the shoulder, but he is expected to be fit to face Wales too.
