"He'll Fit In Seamlessly" - Sean O'Brien Looking Forward To Robbie Henshaw's Arrival At Leinster

"He'll Fit In Seamlessly" - Sean O'Brien Looking Forward To Robbie Henshaw's Arrival At Leinster
By Mikey Traynor Updated

Robbie Henshaw's imminent arrival at Leinster is something that has been heavily discussed by fans and players alike, and Sean O'Brien told us that the Ireland centre will be well received when he appears for his first training session with his new provincial teammates.

O'Brien was talking to us at the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy S7, which you can win with thanks to Leinster Rugby and Samsung Ireland (more details below), and the first thing we had to ask him about was his fantastic story about Brian O'Driscoll sticking up for him on his first training session with Ireland.

If you haven't heard O'Brien's telling of that tale, then you really should give it a listen, but when we asked if Robbie Henshaw could expect a shoeing as a sort of initiation, the Leinster flanker was quick to play that idea down with some very warm comments ahead of Henshaw's arrival.

No, I don't think Robbie'll be getting a shoeing in his first session, although he may catch the odd stray one over the course of the season.

No it's different times nowadays, and we have to be quite disciplined in training now as well as games, so he'll be invited down with open arms and all will be good.

With regards to settling in after the move to Dublin, O'Brien also sees no problems for Henshaw as he believes the Connacht man already enjoys life around the city.

He's been up here lots of times and experienced the city and life around Dublin so I think he enjoys it already so he'll fit in seamlessly. It's only a bigger place from where he's after coming from, so I won't be giving him too much advice.

You can watch our brief chat with O'Brien here, where he also singled out Donnacha Ryan as the most patriotic member of the Irish rugby squad:
