A double injury blow for Ireland ahead of this weekend’s test with the All Blacks
The possibility of halfback Conor Murray returning from a neck injury has been quashed, while centre Robbie Henshaw is out for the remainder of the autumn internationals.
Henshaw injured his hamstring during the warm-up against Argentina at the weekend.
There was initial optimism he’d be fit, but coach Joe Schmidt has ruled him out.
Henshaw's likely replacement is Garry Ringrose, who missed the Pumas test with injury.
He's expected to be available to partner Bundee Aki against the world champions.
