Former Leinster and Connacht out-half Andy Dunne thinks Garry Ringrose should come in at outside-centre for Ireland’s Six Nations clash with Scotland on Saturday week.
Chris Farrell’s been ruled out of the rest of the Championship after suffering a knee ligament injury in yesterday’s open training session at the Aviva Stadium.
Sam Arnold and Rory Scannell are also in contention to start in midfield against the Scots but Dunne feels Ringrose is the right man to get the 13 shirt.
Six Nations Rugby will take no disciplinary action against Scotland or England for the tunnel incident at Murrayfield during last Saturday’s Calcutta Cup match.
England’s Owen Farrell and Scotland’s Ryan Wilson had clashed after the pre-match warm-up before other players had to be seperated.
Having reviewed the television footage, officials say there was evidence of ‘pushing and shoving’ but ‘no clear evidence of violent conduct or similar against any individual player’.
With Ireland securing a bonus point win against Wales, their five-point lead over England in the standings puts them in a good position to reclaim the title they won in 2015.
