How long will Robbie Henshaw be out? Joe Schmidt confirms

Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt has confirmed Robbie Henshaw is likely to miss around three or four months after undergoing shoulder surgery.

Henshaw damaged his shoulder while scoring his second try in Saturday’s 56-19 victory over Italy and had an operation earlier this week.

“It was something we feared after the game,” Schmidt admitted.

“Just with the mechanism of injury but you always hope against hope that something may not have happened and you get through without any serious injury but unfortunately, that shoulder isn’t going to be good for another three-four months.”
