Huge Boost For Leo Cullen As Leinster Star Declared Fit For Munster Clash

Back in blue.

Ireland and Lions centre Robbie Henshaw is fit and ready to play against Munster this weekend at the Aviva Stadium, after successfully recovering from a torn pectoral muscle.

The talented midfielder has been out of action for almost 12 weeks after having surgery on the injury picked up while playing for the British & Irish Lions against the Hurricanes over the summer.

His recovery couldn’t have come at a better time, with Leo Cullen suffering with an injury crisis in midfield at the moment. Garry Ringrose is on the long-term casualty list, while captain Isa Nacewa is set to miss the Munster game, and their Champions Cup opener with Montpellier.

Cullen names his team for the first inter-pro of the season at 12pm on Friday.
