Rugby: Ireland dealt a double blow to the All Blacks test


Ireland dealt two serious blows and Conor Murray drew, and midfielder Robbie Henshaw ruled out of this year's test against All Blacks in Dublin.

Murray had not played since June because of a neck injury, but after coming to Dublin, All Blacks coach Steve Hansen probably predicted that world class 9 would make a shock.

This did not happen, and Ireland issued a statement on Tuesday (NZT), in which Murray accelerated his recovery, but did not join the squad this month.

Henshaw, the devastating second fifth eighth who pushed his way through the brilliantly functioning scrum movement in the historic Irish win over All Blacks in Chicago, withdrew at the end of last week with a hamstring problem that did not heal over time.

Together with Murray and Henshaw, Ireland is robbed of over 100 tests. These news came after they also lost the 57-point British and Irish opener Lions Sean O & # 39; Brien, who broke his arm in front of Puma last week.

The former Counts Manukau and Chiefs, the second five Bundee Aki and Garry Ringrose, are now favored to join forces in the Irish midfielder, but the latter tried to carry out the Pumas test with a hypnotic complaint that took place last week against Italy in Chicago.

Ulster & # 39; s Will Addison is also in dispute with Aki's partner born in Auckland.

Ireland, however, sweats in the condition of deputy Murray, Kieran Marmion and Aki after both players have turned their ankles in the second half of the 28-17 win over Pumas.

The All Blacks look better, although they also lost Propa Joe Moody's (eye) and second-hand Sonny Bill Williams (shoulder) to injury in London.

In terms of exhausted stocks in Ireland, All Blacks, midfielder Ryan Crotta, believes that whoever will go will be a threat.

"They have class players at their back end, they're playing a great code right now, so anyone who gets 12 and 13 boys from our team against them will have to be prepared quite urgently," said Crotty.

"It's great to see that Bundee is doing a good job here, that I remember playing against Crusaders against Chiefs, he was a great player then, and he just jumped in and there's Henshaw who is an outstanding footballer, so it's a great challenge. "
