Henshaw to leave Connacht

Connacht have confirmed that Ireland centre Robbie Henshaw will leave the province at the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has confirmed that he has decided not to renew his contract with Connacht beyond the end of the current season, paving the way for the Ireland international to move to Leinster.

"I would like to thank everyone involved in Connacht Rugby who has played a part in getting me to where I am today, from my club, Buccaneers, to my school, Marist College and all of the coaching staff in Connacht Rugby itself," Henshaw said.

"I was fortunate to be given my chance to play pro rugby at just 19 years of age and it’s been an incredible journey over the past four seasons, culminating in my breakthrough onto the national team.

"I also want to thank the Connacht fans who have always been so supportive of not just me but the team as a whole.

"Connacht Rugby are sitting in a strong position both in the Pro12 and Challenge Cup and I am determined to play my part to ensure we finish the season out on a high."

Henshaw is set to stay in Ireland as he is close to signing an IRFU central contract, and Leinster are looking for replacements after losing Ben Te’o to Worcester Warriors, and Ian Madigan to Bordeaux at the end of the season.

Connacht coach Pat Lam added: "Obviously we are disappointed with the ultimate outcome of our negotiations with Robbie, however, we respect the decision he has made and wish him all the best with the Irish team into the future."
