Sean O’Brien has been dealt a blow in his bid to make Ireland’s final game of the Six Nations next weekend.
The flanker was making his comeback from a hip injury in Leinster’s refixed Pro 14 clash with Scarlets last night.
However, he lasted just over a quarter of the game, being forced off the field with what Leo Cullen described as “a bang on the shoulder”.
Leinster remain top of Conference B, after that game finished in a 10-10 draw.
Bryan and Ed Byrne also lined out making it three Carlow players on the field of play from the off.
Full injury update on O’Brien is expected over the coming days.
