Robbie Henshaw pulls out of Ireland tour
May 29, 2014
Connacht back Robbie Henshaw has withdrawn from Ireland's tour to Argentina because of a long-standing hand ligament injury.
Henshaw sustained the injury earlier in the season but it has not prevented him training. However, he aggravated it earlier in the week and a specialist has advised him to have it operated on.
He had been widely tipped to succeed Brian O'Driscoll in Ireland's midfield.
