It’s Official, We Know Who Robbie Henshaw Will Be Playing For Next Season


Robbie Henshaw will be playing for Leinster next season.

The Ireland centre confirmed his departure from Connacht on Sunday and an IRFU statement this afternoon confirmed that the 22-year-old is moving to Leinster this summer on a three-year deal.

Henshaw said: “I would like to thank Connacht Rugby, the IRFU and Leinster for allowing me time to consider my future.

“This has been a long and difficult process and while I am sorry to be leaving Connacht I look forward to the next chapter of my rugby career at Leinster.

“The support I have enjoyed from the fans in the Sportsground and throughout the province is something that I really value and I want to thank them for four great years.”

Leinster coach Leo Cullen said: “We are delighted to have secured Robbie’s signature for the next three seasons.

“Robbie is a huge talent and we have all seen that over the last few weeks and months with Ireland in the 6 Nations and during the World Cup.  We look forward to welcoming him into Leinster when this season is over and I am sure that our supporters would echo that view.”
