The Official Online RBS 6 Nations Store is open. The store has everything you need to get behind your team during the RBS 6 Nations, plus the store is now fully stocked with a much wider range of rugby merchandise.
Centre D’Arcy, who won his last cap in this year’s RBS 6 Nations thrashing of England, had not responded to initial treatment to solve the problems and a decision was taken to have surgery in a bid to avoid him missing the World Cup.
He missed the first of Ireland’s preparation camps this week in Kildare but Declan Kidney fully expects to have him available for the clashes with Scotland, France and England.
But Kidney has been given a huge boost with flanker Stephen Ferris resuming full training for the first time since January.
The Ulster star missed the entire Six Nations campaign with a knee injury but is set to rejoin the international ranks in the coming weeks.
