"He's been fantastic in his leadership and he was a big part of the reason why we got what we wanted out of the Italy game."No replacement has been named for Ringrose but Ulster scrumhalf John Cooney has been called into the Ireland squad as cover for Jamison Gibson-Park, who made his international debut off the bench against Italy but is struggling with a tight hamstring, the IRFU added.
