Leinster's Ireland flanker Dan Leavy will miss the rest of the season after having surgery to repair cartilage in his knee, the province confirmed on Monday.

The 26-year-old has made nine appearances for Leinster this season after recovering from a knee injury he sustained in 2019, which ruled him out of the Rugby World Cup in Japan.

“Bad news for Dan but we're all behind him and hoping he'll be back stronger than ever,” Irish Rugby tweeted.

Leavy has 11 caps for Ireland and was part of the squad that secured the Grand Slam in 2018. He last played in Leinster's 52-25 victory at Scarlets last month.
