Zebo ruled out of Six Nations
Sun, 10 Feb 2013 18:38
Ireland wing Simon Zebo is set to miss the rest of the Six Nations Championship after being ruled out for up to 10 weeks with a broken bone in his right foot, team coach Declan Kidney said on Sunday.
Zebo went off injured early in Ireland's 12-6 second round Six Nations defeat by England in Dublin on Sunday and was replaced by utility back Keith Earls.
As well as the rest of the Championship, which finishes on March 16, Zebo is also in line to be ruled out of Munster's European Cup quarterfinal away to English champions Harlequins on April 7.
England's victory, which followed last week's success against Scotland, left them as the only side in this Six Nations capable of winning a Grand Slam as none of their rivals have also won both their opening two matches.
