Ireland centre Garry Ringrose will miss the Six Nations matches against Wales and England after undergoing a "procedure on a hand injury", Irish rugby chiefs announced on Monday.

Ringrose was replaced at half-time in Saturday's 19-12 win over Scotland and the Irish Rugby Football Union confirmed he would miss the next two games.

"Garry Ringrose has had a procedure on a hand injury and is due to be available for selection ahead of Round 4 of the Championship," said an IRFU statement.

"Garry will stay connected with the squad as a member of the leadership group."

Ireland host Wales on Saturday and travel to face England on February 23.
