Another Key Ireland International Looks Set To Miss The England Game

Dropping like flies.

Ireland look set to be without lock Iain Henderson for their Six Nations opener against England next month, adding to Joe Schmidt’s injury woe in the second-row department.

Munster lock Tadhg Beirne has already been ruled out of the first two rounds against England and Scotland, with Connacht’s Quinn Roux earning a call-up.

Henderson, who made his comeback on Saturday with a man-of-the-match performance, will be out for “several weeks” according to Ulster after picking up a finger injury. This fresh injury is unrelated to his recently injured thumb.

The prognosis sounds bleak and could mean Henderson misses the entire tournament.
