Ireland centre Robbie Henshaw is set for a return to action this week in Connacht’s final European pool fixture according to the Irish Times.
Henshaw is back training at the Sportground in the expectation of lining out in Saturday’s Challenge Cup game against Russian visitors Enisei-STM, but he is still awaiting final clearance on his hand injury.
“He had the scan last week and the surgeon said he was not quite ready,” said Connacht coach Pat Lam, “which is the reason he didn’t go to Brive. Now it’s the second week, and again he feels pretty good with it.
“He will train all this week and prepare to play, and then we will need the final sign off from the surgeon.”
