Leinster and Ireland hooker James Tracy out for five weeks with dislocated elbow

Leinster hooker James Tracy has been ruled out for approximately five weeks with a dislocated elbow.

The incident happened during the first-half of the win over Ulster, causing his immediate removal in the 27th minute.

It limits Leinster's options against Glasgow Warriors in the position to Sean Cronin, Bryan Byrne and Richardt Strauss, thankfully recovered from a lower back injury.

It will also stifle Tracy's push for further Ireland honours in the Six Nations, ruling out France (February 3) and, probably, Italy (February 10). 

It comes as a cruel blow to the former Newbridge College loose-head prop, who began the transition to hooker on the advice of Joe Schmidt back in 2013.

He made his Ireland debut against Canada in November of 2011 and was used sparingly as a replacement against Fiji, for 24 minutes, and against Argentina, for five minutes, in November  

The incident happened during the second-half of the win over Ulster, causing his immediate removal. 

This comes hot on the heels of Garry Ringrose's exclusion for six weeks, or thereabouts, with syndesmosis.
