Tues pm Update: Ciarán Clark Misses Tonight’s Wales Match; Ireland U19’s Win Again; Quinn Roux Signs Connacht Extension

: 10/16/2018 - 17:24

Newcastle's Ciaran Clark will miss tonight’s Nations League against Wales due to a thigh injury, and he's been replaced by Blackburn defender Derrick Williams.

Martin O'Neill has dismissed criticism of the Republic of Ireland's style of play after Denmark midfielder Thomas Delaney accused them of being "primitive".

Delaney's comments came after he saw his side held to a nil-nil draw on Saturday in the Nations League

O'Neill insists lessons have been learned from last month's 4-1 defeat to Wales in Cardiff.

A win against Wales tonight would lift Ireland off the foot of the group, and says his side will take the game to Wales tonight.

=======

The Republic of Ireland under-19s finished the first phase of their Euro qualifiers with a 100 per cent record.

Goals from Adam Idah and Will Ferry saw Tom Mohan's side come from behind to beat the Netherlands 2-1 in Longford.

Having topped their group, Ireland will be top seeds in the Elite Phase.

===========

Jose Mourinho has been charged by the FA for alleged comments made after his side's 3-2 win against Newcastle.

He was caught on camera at full time at Old Trafford appearing to utter something in Portuguese.

The FA alleges he used "abusive, insulting or improper language".

==========

Two Toulouse players are in danger of missing Sunday's Heineken Champions Cup game vs Leinster.

Jerome Kaino and Lucas Pointud  will appear before a disciplinary commission in Paris tomorrow following incidents in their dramatic win over Bath.

Former All Black Kaino was sin-binned for a challenge on Jamie Roberts, but now faces the extra charge of striking.

Pointud is alleged to have head-butted Nathan Catt.

=============

Quinn Roux has signed a new two-year contract extension with Connacht.

The Irish international lock will remain with the province until at least the summer of 2021.

The South African-born 27-year old has won six international caps since his move from Leinster.
=====

Kerry’s Darran O'Sullivan has announced his retirement from inter-county football.

The four-time All-Ireland winner becomes the latest retirement following Donnacha Walsh, Kieran Donaghy and Anthony Maher.
