Robbie Henshaw will not make it to the starting line for Leinster’s PRO14 League final against Scarlets at The Aviva Stadium on Saturday.

The centre has not played since picking up a knee injury in The Champions Cup final against Racing 92 last Saturday week. 

This places an increased emphasis on Isa Nacewa making it back from a calf injury that has nagged the captain in the last two weeks.

Henshaw’s issue is not serious and fears his season was at an end have faded away.

In fact, he is expected to be named in Ireland’s squad for the three-test tour to Australia next month sometime later today.
