Injury forces Chris Henry out of Springbok encounter

Rhys Ruddock has been drafted into the Ireland team to face South Africa after Chris Henry was ruled out with a virus.

The Leinster flanker comes into the pack with Tommy O'Donnell named on the replacements bench.

Henry was reportedly struck down with a virus last night and now Schmidt will have to do without the backrower.
