Robbie Henshaw OUT of Ireland's World Cup opener against Canada
Robbie Henshaw has been ruled out of Ireland's World Cup opener against Canada on Saturday.
While Henshaw was expected to start for Joe Schmidt's men, Independent.ie understands he picked up a slight hamstring twinge in training and will sit this one out as a precautionary measure.
Luke Fitzgerald is favourite to partner Jared Payne in the centre for Saturday's Cardiff clash when Joe Schmidt announces his 15 at 2pm today.
