Chris Farrell expected to miss remainder of 6 Nations as Ireland's injury list grows
Farrell was man-of-the-match in Ireland's win over Wales

Ireland have suffered another midfield injury blow with Munster star Chris Farrell expected to miss the rest of the NatWest 6 Nations.

Farrell won the man-of-the-match award in Ireland’s 37-27 win over Wales in Dublin on Saturday, but suffered knee ligament damage in an open training session at the Aviva Stadium on Tuesday, the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) confirmed.

Ireland are already without long-term absentees Jared Payne and Robbie Henshaw for the rest of their bid for a first Grand Slam in nine years, while Garry Ringrose is still seeking full match sharpness after ankle trouble.

Ireland next face Scotland on Saturday March 10th at the Aviva Stadium.
