Injury concern for Ireland as Iain Henderson ruled out of Munster clash

Les Kiss will be without a number of players for Friday’s Pro12 game.

The forward sustained the injury during the province’s Champions Cup win over Exeter at the weekend and will now miss the visit of Munster to Ravenhill.

Henderson’s latest setback will be of real concern for Joe Schmidt so close to the November Tests, with Ireland flying out to Chicago early next week.

Ulster will, however, have Darren Cave and Robbie Diack available for the second interpro fixture of the season after they recovered from their respective injuries.

Luke Marshall (knee) and Dan Tuohy (hip) suffered ‘low grade’ injuries at the weekend and will be monitored as the week progresses. Stuart Olding (hip flexor) and Kieran Treadwell (ankle) are also doubts.

Director of Rugby Les Kiss will definitely be without the services of Henderson as well as Peter Browne, Alan O’Connor (both concussion), Rodney Ah You (knee) and Ross Kane (facial laceration) for the final game before the international break.

Chris Henry, Marcell Coetzee, Louis Ludik, Stuart McCloskey, Peter Nelson, Matthew Rea and Ricky Lutton all remain on the long-term injury list.
