Ireland winger Trimble ruled out for the season

DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ireland winger Andrew Trimble will miss the rest of the season following a recurrence of a toe injury that has kept him out of action since October, his province Ulster said on Thursday.

Ireland had hoped that Trimble, a revelation during their Six Nations championship title win a year ago, would return to play a part in this year’s championship before its conclusion next month.

It is anticipated the 30-year-old will make a full recovery ahead the September’s World Cup, Ulster said in a statement.
