Dublin - Injured Ireland players Mike McCarthy, Sean O'Brien and Dave Kearney are all in line to miss the remainder of the Six Nations Championship, coach Joe Schmidt said on Friday.

Meanwhile back-row forward O'Brien (torn hamstring) and wing Dave Kearney (shoulder) are in line to miss Ireland's three remaining Championship games, starting against England at Twickenham on February 27.
