Robbie Henshaw ruled out of Springbok test

Andy Farrell has been forced into tweaking his starting lineup on the eve of Ireland's clash against the World Champion Springboks on Saturday.

Robbie Henshaw has withdrawn from the matchday 23 through injury with Stuart McCloskey taking his spot in the starting lineup.


Jimmy O'Brien replaces Stuart McCloskey on the bench and will therefore miss tonight's Ireland A game against the All Blacks XV.

The Leinster winger had been named in the 'A' team but is replaced by Calvin Nash who now starts on the wing for that game, with Shane Daly on the bench.
