SPORT: WEXFORD’S ROBIN COPELAND OUT FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON
It’s been confirmed that Wexford native and munster player Robin Copeland is out for the rest of the season.
After meeting with a specialist it’s been confirmed the 27 year-old will require a shoulder stabilisation procedure.
The former Cardiff Blues player sustained the injury against Leinster on St. Stephen’s Day and has been unable to line out for Munster ever since.
Meanwhile Munster hooker Damien Varley has been forced to announce his retirement.
The 31-year-old has had to admit defeat in his battle to recover from a foot injury that he suffered during a training session in July of last year.
The Clare native won three caps for Ireland after making his debut against Australia in June 2010.
He had attempted to make his return from the injury last October only to suffer a recurrence and he has now been advised by his surgeon that he must retire from competitive action on medical grounds.
