Here's your 'perk of being a rising international star' pic of the day

CONNACHT FULLBACK ROBBIE Henshaw is a star. Of that there can be little doubt.

Mere months after winning a Connacht Schools Cup and doing his leaving he was running riot in the Heineken Cup, doing enough to keep captain Gavin Duffy from returning to the team after injury.

This week, as he is training with the senior international side, he is ruled out of contention for Connacht.

Little wonder that sponsors are beginning to take notice and becoming to keen to associate themselves with the next big brand of Irish Rugby.

This afternoon, he tweeted this image of a gift from a local car dealer in Athlone.

Nice car, we’d love an A3 ourselves, but could his agent not have negotiated a font that doesn’t make him look like he’s on commission?

Henshaw wasn’t the only one to offer a ringing endorsement to a German carmaker, check out the Ferg-mobile:
