Robbie Henshaw, who made his international debut in 2013, has won 57 caps on behalf of Ireland.

Robbie Henshaw from Leinster, Ireland has signed a three year extension to his contract with The Irish Rugby Football Union.

The deal that the 28-year-old had signed was due to expire this summer. The new agreement allows him to stay in 2025.

The Athlone native made his debut in 2013, and has been an ever-present for Ireland whenever he is fit.

He is the winner of two Six Nations titles, a European Champions Cup, and four Pro14 trophies.

Before moving to Leinster he helped Connacht win a memorable Pro12 maiden triumph in 2016.

Henshaw has made 57 international appearances. He was also the first Test captain in the British Lions tour of South Africa last year.

He has been a participant in two World Cups in 2015, 2019 and was awarded the Players' and Player's Player of the Year in Ireland for his outstanding 2020-21 campaign.

“In 2021 Robbie showed that he was one of the best players in world rugby with dominant performances for both Ireland and the British & Irish Lions,” said IRFU performance director David Nucifora.

“While he was injured in the first half of this season, he has been a huge contributor to Leinster and Ireland.

“He will play a major role in achieving the ambitions of both teams this season and over the years.”
