Henshaw Doubtful To Face France, Carbery Making Progress

Henshaw Doubtful To Face France, Carbery Making Progress

The Ireland squad regrouped on Monday night ahead of this weekend's Guinness Six Nations game against France on Sunday.

Robbie Henshaw, who has been out of action since suffering a dead leg against England in the opening game of the tournament, is said to be improving more slowly than it had been hoped. The centre will continue his rehab this week.

Joey Carbery missed out on last month's game against Italy. The out-half is making progress on his hamstring injury.

Dan Leavy, who is yet to feature in this year's Six Nations due to a calf injury, is continuing to increase his running volume outside of team training. Leavy last played in Leinster's pre-Christmas game against Connacht.

Andrew Conway has recovered from the cramp which he suffered following the game against Italy.
