Unfortunately for Garry Ringrose, he'll miss the first couple of games of the 2018 Six Nations after picking up an injury shortly after his return from a long-term one.
But as he told OTB AM, it's not a long-term injury which means he won't be out for too long and could well be in contention for the final couple of rounds of the Ireland's tournament.
He was chatting to Eoin on Wednesday and updated us on his progress.

"Thankfully it's not too bad. It's an ankle injury that the medical team at Leinster have dealt with before and the procedure's been done plenty of times before so it's not a long term one," said the new PwC brand ambassador, setting "another couple of weeks to go" in terms of timescale.
Ringrose's own rise was meteoric and he also discussed a phenomenal start to life with Leinster that has propelled 20 year old team-mate Jordan Larmour into the Ireland squad for the Six Nations.
"I think he's better than I was and some of the performances he's put in have been phenomenal," said the 23 year old.
"It comes as no surprise he's included in the Six Nations squad. He's one of the hardest working lads in the squad and as I was saying earlier, he's one of the last off the training pitch and he's a humble guy, down to earth so he won't get too distracted by anything else."
Off the pitch, Ringrose is studying law and business at UCD and given his Dad's own rugby days were halted by injury, he told Eoin that he's aware of the need to have a fall back option.
"There was one game he was injured and that was that for him," said Ringrose of his Dad's injury.
"It is a brutal sport so you have to have something to fall-back on.
"Just there last month, I sat an exam in the Aviva Stadium, on the Captain's Run before the Exeter game, so I was lucky that UCD were able to send a script down with an invigilator and I was able to sit it at the same time as guys up in the RDS."
