    Dunno if I trust that crowd and "Joey Carbery’s ankle injury will rule him out of action for six weeks, a source close to the Irish camp has confirmed exclusively to RugbyPass." doesnt seem very reliable.

    Still, if that's the case it means he's back for the RWC, might force a third 10 into the squad if that wasn't the plan though.

    Could be, hopefully, but 6 weeks sounds about right based on his reaction the other day.

    Can tell you officially from the Munster medical office. It impossible to say 6 weeks. Swelling is reducing but no scan has taken place yet so how can they tell.

    But in your experience with no fracture and swelling starting to reduce at this stage what would be the average time out?

    Impossible to say with out kbowing what ligament is damaged and how bad. And I haven't seen him in flesh. Could be up to 10 weeks or little as 1 or 2 weeks

    Lovely. Need to put Scotland to the sword so he can get 20mins or so at the end now, hopefully we feel we can start him with Johnny on the bench against Japan.

    And not a hope in hell he would be going to Portugal if he had anything less than 75% chance of being fit for Scotland game.
