Worrying Scenes As Robbie Henshaw Picks Up Serious Injury

This does not look good.

Ireland are making light work of Italy at the Aviva Stadium this afternoon, leading 42-0. But it’s coming at a huge cost with two key players picking up injuries.

Tadhg Furlong lasted just three minutes before coming off with what appears to be a hamstring injury. Now early in the second-half Robbie Henshaw has been forced off with what appears to be a really serious injury.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

The outside centre bagged two tries today, but landed rather awkwardly when scoring the second. He may have popped his shoulder, or damaged his elbow, we’re not quite sure. But it was bad enough for Henshaw to be given what appears to be morphine to numb the pain.

Lets hope he’s ok. Really worrying scenes.
