Robbie Henshaw Ruled Out Of The Remainder Of The Six Nations

Robbie Henshaw Ruled Out Of The Remainder Of The Six Nations

Bad news on the injury front for Ireland as Robbie Henshaw has been ruled out of the rest of the Six Nations. The Ireland centre dislocated his shoulder when grounding the ball for Ireland's fifth try against Italy.

Henshaw had been running riot, scoring two tries before having to come off in the 44th minute. Henshaw was escorted off the pitch needing oxygen and will be a big loss as Ireland look to tame the Dragons in two weeks time.

In a statement issued by the IRFU on their website it was confirmed that the Leinster player will sit out the rest of the Six Nations:

Robbie Henshaw, who suffered a shoulder injury, has undergone a procedure this morning on the injured shoulder and has been ruled out of the remainder of the Championship.

There was better news on the injury front with regards to Leinster's Tadhg Furlong. The Wexford native pulled up with a hamstring problem early on in the match against the Azzurri but according to the IRFU, while a scan revealed a minor hamstring injury, Furlong should be fit in time for Ireland's visit of Wales in a fortnight's time.

Jack Conan's injury was delightfully described as a 'bang on the shoulder' and the IRFU have also assured fans that the Leinster Number 8 will be available for round three of the Six Nations.
