'I think it's a good fit... Robbie will go really well' - Simon Zebo on Henshaw's fullback selection

The Racing 92 star has no worries about his former teammate.

JOE SCHMIDT HAS thrown a curveball this week by picking Leinster man Robbie Henshaw at fullback. 

Joe Schmidt has been pondering the option for some time and, given Rob Kearney’s evident ring-rust, made the call for tomorrow’s Guinness Six Nations opener against England at Lansdowne Road. 

Last night at our tournament preview event in Liberty Hall, we asked Simon Zebo — a man who knows a thing or two about the position — about the challenge facing Henshaw at 15 against Eddie Jones’ side.
