Both Iain Henderson and Tadhg Furlong are in line to return for Ireland when they take on Scotland on Saturday week, in round four of the Six Nations.
Ireland currently sit top of the championship after their win over Wales. Should they defeat Scotland in Dublin, they could end up securing the championship with a game to go, depending on results.
Furlong and Henderson missed the bonus-point win over Wales, after failing to recover in time. But ‘should’ train all next week, and be available for selection in round four.
Joe Schmidt says the plan is for Iain Henderson and Tadhg Furlong will train next week ahead of the Scotland game. Maybe modified on Monday, fully from then on.

Meanwhile, Chris Farrell has been ruled out for the remainder of the Six Nations, after injuring his ankle in training today. Garry Ringrose is in line to replace him after making a successful return for Leinster this past weekend.
