Leinster have confirmed that Jordan Larmour suffered a knee injury on Ireland duty and underwent a minor procedure to rectify it.

Larmour came off the bench in the historic win over the All Blacks with his knee heavily strapped, but the Ireland management insisted last week that he was not injured.

Eyebrows were raised when the IRFU revealed that the 21-year old had returned to Leinster ahead of the USA game last weekend with skills and kicking coach Richie Murphy saying:

“No, he’s just gone back, he was involved with the first three games. We’ve just released him back. He’s a little bit beaten up like a lot of guys over the last couple of weeks, but there is no injury there.”

This morning however, Leinster offered further clarity on Larmour's fitness and said that he was indeed injured, but is due back in training next week.

Elsewhere, Jack Conan damaged his AC joint in the win over the USA and will be further assessed this week. He will not feature against the Dragons on Saturday.

Scrum-half Nick McCarthy suffered a foot injury in Leinster's facile victory against the Ospreys and will undergo further tests.

Barry Daly (knee) has returned to on-field training and will hope to step up his recovery throughout the week.
