Joe Schmidt & Ireland Handed Massive Six Nations Fitness Boost

Ready to go.

Ireland have been handed a massive Six Nations boosts with news that Robbie Henshaw will be back in full training next week and will likely be available for the Italy game and beyond.

Henshaw, who started at fullback in the loss to England, missed the win over Scotland with a knock sustained just days before the game. Rob Kearney started at fifteen in that win, with Chris Farrell coming in at thirteen.

With Farrell released back to start for Munster this weekend, and Kearney in excellent form, Henshaw now looks primed to slot back into the centre against Italy alongside either Bundee Aki or Garry Ringrose who will be assessed on his injury over the weekend.

Johnny Sexton meanwhile trained fully today and is fit and ready to go.
