Ireland Issue Squad Update Ahead Of All Blacks Clash – And There’s Some Big News

Back in action.

Robbie Henshaw will be re-integrated into team training across the week as he completes his rehab programme. The British and Irish Lions centre missed the win over Japan but could potentially now come straight back into the squad for the All Blacks game.

Gavin Coombes, meanwhile, will not train with the squad this week as he continues his recovery from illness. There were also no injury concerns emerging from the 60-5 victory over Japan on Saturday afternoon.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – fronted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy and Ireland international Megan Williams. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

The game against New Zealand, which is a sell-out, will be televised by RTE and Channel 4.

Tickets for the final game of the Autumn Nations Series against Mario Ledesma’s Argentina on Sunday 21st November are available from ticketmaster.ie
