Ireland lock Iain Henderson has been ruled out of Sunday's Six Nations clash against Italy due to Covid.

The Ulster captain tested positive during routine testing of the Ireland squad and management upon arrival into camp on Monday evening.

Henderson is said to be doing well and he has now left camp and returned home in order to complete his isolation period.

The IRFU have said that “there are no other positive results within the group and the squad will continue to test across the week.”
