Ireland and Leinster Robbie Henshaw likely won’t play again this season after undergoing an operation on his shoulder this week.
But now Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt has revealed he is facing 3-4 months out of action.
That would mean a May/June return for the Lions tourist, all but ending his involvement for Leinster this season. It also means he likely won’t tour with Ireland to Australia this summer.
Meanwhile Iain Henderson, James Ryan and Tadhg Furlong are expected to be fit to train next Tuesday. All three players should be fit and ready to go in time for the Wales game in round 3.
