Extent Of Robbie Henshaw’s Injury Makes For Grim Reading For Leinster And Ireland

The news which emerged on Monday that Robbie Henshaw is set to miss the rest of the Six Nations came as a hammer blow to Joe Schmidt and Ireland, who now must reassess the midfield options ahead of three mammoth clashes with Wales, Scotland and England.

The continued absence of Garry Ringrose makes things even trickier, with the likelihood being that Bundee Aki and Chris Farrell join up in the midfield for the Wales test.

Today, Schmidt offered an update on Henshaw’s fitness, and it’s not good news for Leinster.

The former Connacht star is set to miss the rest of the season, which is a huge setback for Leinster’s European Champions Cup ambitions. They face Saracens at home in the quarter-final, and many supporters have ambitiously booked flights to Bilbao for the final already. However, Henshaw’s absence means that the task has become a whole lot more difficult.

Ireland also tour Australia in June, with three tests against the Wallabies.

Henshaw will be aiming to make a swift recovery, and fight his way back into the side. Here’s hoping that we see him back in the blue and green jerseys sooner rather than later.
