This update comes on the back of yesterday’s confirmation that Henry’s Ulster and Ireland team-mate Paddy Jackson suffered an AC joint sprain at his right shoulder during last Friday’s PRO12 win over the Ospreys.

The Ulster out-half, who has nine Ireland caps to his name, is expected to be out of rugby for up to six weeks.
