Ireland International Offers Up Huge Potential Six Nations Boost

On the mend.

Ireland centre Robbie Henshaw believes he will be fit in time for February’s Six Nations opener with old rivals England at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

The Leinster star is currently recovering from a hamstring problem picked up in the warm-up ahead of Ireland’s Test win over Argentina last month, with the eastern province last week stating he would be out for eight weeks.

That timeframe would see him miss Ireland’s opener with England, as well as their round 2 clash with Scotland at Murrayfield.

But Henshaw has set the English game in his sights and believes he will be back in time.
