Henshaw A Doubt For France Clash

Robbie Henshaw remains a doubt for Ireland’s Six Nations meeting with France on Sunday.

The versatile Leinster back has been suffering with a dead leg for the past number of weeks, with the IRFU saying the injury is taking longer than expected to heal.

Joey Carbery’s hamstring injury is said to be progressing well, and his training will be managed in the early part of this week.

The Athlone man has played the opening game but missed the last two matches. Henshaw made his Ireland debut in 2013 and has garnered 36 caps

Joe Schmidt’s expected to name his extended squad for the remaining two games of Ireland’s campaign tomorrow.

Meanwhile, France head coach Jacques Brunel has stuck with the same fifteen for Sunday’s game that beat Scotland in Paris a fortnight ago.
