The news today that Ronan O'Gara's long and distinguished playing time is over, brings to a close what was by any standards, a remarkable career.
Of more immediate concern is Mick Sherry who hurt an ankle and was replaced in the 23rd minute. Sherry will have a scan later today to determine the seriousness of the damage.
Damien Varley and Luke O'Dea, who both missed the Cardiff game through illness, have recovered and will be training with the squad on Wednesday while Johne Murphy, forced out of the starting XV for Saturday's game after tweaking a hamstring in training is a doubt for the weekend games.
