Henshaw Savours Scrappy Win As Ringrose Waits In The Wings

Andy Farrell will have three world class centres to choose from for Ireland's meeting with England.

Ireland centre Garry Ringrose is set to be available for the Six Nations match against England at Twickenham on Saturday week.

He's been dealing with a shoulder problem.

Ringrose will have to dislodge either Bundee Aki or Athlone's Robbie Henshaw to make the starting 15.

Henshaw is reflecting on Ireland's bonus point win over Wales on Saturday.

The Athlone man is satisfied his side managed to handle a spirited performance by Warren Gatland's side and still take maximum points from the contest.

Ireland were dominant in the first half, reaching the break 17-0 up, only for Wales to comeback in the second period with a penalty try and some sustained pressure.

Despite the fightback, late tries from Ciaran Frawley and Tadhg Beirne secured another bonus point win for Ireland.

Henshaw says he's thrilled to see his team win such a tricky encounter:

After Saturday's win, it leaves Andy Farrell's side within two victories of becoming the first team in the Six Nations era to win back-to-back Grand Slams.
