It’s like a battlefield out there.

Sean O’Brien limped off, Mike McCarthy was a bloody mess and Johnny Sexton was left in a heap after an off the ball challenge.

But Dave Kearney looked to have taken the worst hit of all as he was forced off in the first half of Ireland’s second Six Nations tie in Paris.

Kearney was clattered by a high shoulder from French hooker Guilhem Guirado and left the pitch with his arm clung tight to his chest in a makeshift sling.

The players couldn’t believe it.

And it wasn’t just the players and former players who were incensed.
