Hugely positive news on the injury front for Leinster ahead of crunch Exeter clash

Robbie Henshaw
Robbie Henshaw

Des Berry

It is understood Robbie Henshaw has hit his fitness marks to be ready for Leinster’s crunch Champions Cup tie with Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park on Sunday (KO5.30, BTSport).

The Ireland centre has not played since hammering out a typically robust performance against South Africa (November 11) and a 15-minute cameo against Fiji (November 18) more than two weeks ago. 

The Athlone man picked up a hamstring strain during training in the lead-up to the Argentina test match.

In fact, he has played just three times for Leinster this season, lasting all 80 minutes against Munster in the PRO14 League and Montpellier and Glasgow Warriors in Europe.  

The coaches will be able to breathe easier as his physical presence and defensive intelligence are a bedrock of the Blues defence.

It could also free-up club captain Isa Nacewa to man the left-wing slot given James Lowe has not been registered for this round.

There is also the option of pairing Nacewa and Henshaw in the centre due to the ring-rust of Garry Ringrose, who has played just 71 minutes of rugby this season.
