Henshaw returns to Ireland training but Coombes ruled out


There is some positive news for Leinster centre Robbie Henshaw this week as he is set to be re-integrated into team training with the rest of the Ireland squad.

Henshaw will be re-integrated as part of his ongoing rehab programme under the direction of the Ireland medical team.

However, Munster back-rower Gavin Coombes will not train with the side this week as he continues to recover from illness.

There were no injury concerns emerging from the 60-5 victory over Japan on Saturday afternoon.

The game against New Zealand on Saturday, November 13, which is a sell-out, will be televised by RTE and Channel 4.
