Ireland forward Henderson to miss most of Six Nations

Iain Henderson toured New Zealand with the British and Irish Lions in 2017

Ulster and Ireland forward Iain Henderson has been ruled out for 10 to 12 weeks after undergoing surgery on a thumb injury on Monday.

The 26-year-old will miss most of Ireland’s Six Nations campaign, plus Ulster’s final two Champions Cup Pool Four games, and several Pro14 matches.

In-form Henderson scored two tries in Ulster’s win over Scarlets on Friday.

The British and Irish Lion is understood to want the injury cleared up before next year’s World Cup.
