Slight setback for Henshaw


Robbie Henshaw will have to wait before making his competitive return after it emerged that his recovery from a broken bone in his hand is taking longer than expected.

The Ireland centre suffered a metacarpal fracture of his hand during Connacht's Guinness PRO12 win over Munster on November 28 and subsequently underwent surgery.

Connacht head coach Pat Lam had hoped to have the 22-year-old old available for this weekend's European Rugby Challenge Cup game against Brive, but he has been advised to give his hand longer to recover.

"Robbie had a CT scan on Friday and it showed it is not fully healed so he was advised to take another one or two weeks. Maybe, he might be available hopefully next week," Lam confirmed.

The setback has raised fears that Henshaw will miss the start of the RBS Six Nations Championship, but Lam is confident he will be available.

"The most important thing now is that we got the clarity on that fracture. If he is back playing next, he has plenty of time for the Six Nations," he added.

Meanwhile, Marty Moore appears to be on the verge of leaving Leinster.

The 24-year-old has reportedly agreed to join Wasps at the end of the season after being offered a three-year contract by the Aviva Premiership side, compared to the two-year deal Leinster put before him.

Leinster are already set to lose Ian Madigan at the end of the season with the back set to move to Bordeaux in the summer.
