HENSHAW RENEWS CENTRE PARTNERSHIP WITH AKI
ROBBIE HENSHAW will win his 52nd Senior cap when Ireland throw down the gauntlet to England in the final round of Guinness Six Nations championship fixtures on Saturday. Henshaw will renew his Connacht centre partnership with Bundee Aki as Garry Ringrose is injured so Robbie switches to outside centre for the big clash at the Aviva Stadium.
Henshaw has surely been Ireland’s most consistent performer this season and really should have been awarded the man of the match accolade for his influential contribution including the opening try in the win away to Scotland. The Buccs star has now scored 8 tries, 2 each against New Zealand, England and Italy as well as a try each against Scotland and France. Here’s hoping he can notch a third touchdown against the ‘auld enemy’ and put in another stellar display on Saturday.
Best of luck to Robbie and Ireland in this hugely anticipated match which kicks off at 4.45 p.m.
Come on, Ireland!
