IRELAND LOCK IAIN Henderson has been ruled fit for Saturday’s November international clash with New Zealand at the Aviva Stadium.

Henderson missed the victory over the All Blacks in Chicago and was held back from the win over Canada as he recovered from a shoulder injury. But the powerful Ulster lock trained fully last week and will be available to contest for a place in the matchday 23 this time around.

There were no new injuries other than ‘bumps and bruises’ for team manager Mick Kearney to report today, but Munster duo Dave Kilcoyne and Darren Sweetnam have returned to their province having been involved in the Carton House camp last week.
