Carbery may also miss Ireland’s Six Nations opener against Scotland on February 1

Joey Carbery will undergo surgery on a wrist ligament injury that will rule him out of Munster’s must-win Champions Cup clash against Racing 92.
Carbery sustained the injury in Friday night’s PRO14 game against Ulster and he has now been ruled out for the “immediate future.”
The injury also leaves him doubtful for the start of Ireland’s Six Nations campaign.
Munster are likely to be without their top three fly-halves for Sunday’s Champions Cup encounter in Paris.
