Key Ireland Star Looks Set To Miss Start Of Six Nations

Hamstrung.

Leinster and Ireland centre Robbie Henshaw looks set to miss the start of the 2019 Six Nations with a hamstring injury picked up in the warm-up against Argentina last month.

The 25-year-old was forced to pull out of the game against the Pumas at the last minute, with Ulster centre Will Addison replacing him in the centre. He’s been assessed at Leinster for the last couple of weeks, with the eastern province revealing today he faces another eight weeks out.

That means a return date of around February 10, ruling him out of Ireland’s opening two fixtures against England and Scotland.

Bundee Aki and Garry Ringrose will likely continue their partnership in his absence, with Chris Farrell and Will Addison also in contention to replace him.
