Leinster Set For Massive Robbie Henshaw Boost Ahead Of Semi-Final

Back in action.

Leinster could be set for a massive fitness boost ahead of their Champions Cup semi-final on Saturday, with Robbie Henshaw in line to return to full training this week.

The eastern province will take on the Scarlets at the Aviva Stadium this weekend, where Henshaw injured his shoulder while playing for Ireland back in February,

A full update on Henshaw is expected this afternoon, but he did take full part in Leinster’s warm-up last Saturday evening. Whether or not he can come through a contact session remains to be seen.

“He was running around there, so he’s getting closer,” Cullen said.

“The hope is that he trains this week. It was good to get him back for the match-day warm-up. He did a good bit of training last week, he’s getting closer.”

Munster meanwhile are set for a boost of their own, with Keith Earls set to return this weekend ahead of schedule.
