The Latest Update On The Injuries To Robbie Henshaw & Tadhg Furlong

Worrying scenes.

Ireland got the job done against Italy this afternoon with a 56-19 bonus point win in Dublin. But the win it appears has come at a huge cost, with Robbie Henshaw’s tournament potentially over.

Joe Schmidt was asked about the centre after the game and it appears he has dislocated his shoulder. The Ireland boss refused to rule him out of the Six Nations, as he awaits a scan, but seemed pretty pessimistic about the outcome.

“It’s probably come at a bit of a cost. Robbie’s shoulder is very sore. He’ll get a scan tomorrow.” Schmidt said

“Yeah, there’s always a chance (he misses the rest of the tournament) because he’s in a degree of discomfort. Until he gets the scan, we won’t be able to make any assessment.”

The good news though is Tadhg Furlong’s injury is not as bad as we all initially feared. Schmidt says it was more of a precaution to take him off, and that he hopes to have the tighthead back in training by Thursday next week.

Furlong should be good to go for Wales. Henshaw likely won’t play again during this year’s Six Nations.
