Update On Robbie Henshaw Following Scan On Hamstring Injury

Sticking around.

Robbie Henshaw looks set to miss Ireland’s Rugby World Cup pool opener with Scotland on Sunday, but will remain with the squad and could return as early as the Japan game next week.

Henshaw injured his hamstring in training last week but following a scan, it appears the injury isn’t as bad as initially feared for the centre.

Ireland have not released a timeline for his recovery but will continue to update us as the tournament progresses.

“Robbie’s looking a lot better, just back from training and still sorting things out but it’s reasonably positive in terms of what we saw,” said Ireland coach Greg Feek via The42

“Day-by-day, week-by-week, things can improve so we’re just taking it like that. From here on in, we’ll see how it goes over the next few days and then reassess.”

“I know what game he’ll be targeting, it’s still early days,” said Feek.

“We still have hopes for next week. We’ll go day-by-day, there will be another update next week.

“He’s a good man, great to have around and his work ethic is incredible. To be around now, I guess that’s a bit of a relief.”
