“il Pro12 degli altri”: Robbie Henshaw lascia Connacht a fine stagione

Screen Shot 2016-02-14 at 15.24.44Connacht Rugby, prossimo avversario delle Zebre Rugby, ha annunciato con un comunicato stampa sul proprio sito ufficiale che Robbie Henshaw non rinnoverà il suo contratto con la Province dell’Ovest e lascerà Galway al termine della stagione in corso.

Non è ancora stata ufficializzata la destinazione del centro, uno dei migliori prodotti del rugby irlandese degli ultimi anni, ma è praticamente certo che resterà sull’Isola in Verde – impossibile che la IRFU si faccia scappare un talento simile.
Rumours fondati danno Henshaw come prossimo acquisto di Leinster.

Ecco il comunicato ufficiale di Connacht:

Connacht Rugby can confirm that Robbie Henshaw will not be extending his contract with the province beyond this season.
Commenting on the news Pat Lam said “Obviously we are disappointed with the ultimate outcome of our negotiations with Robbie, however, we respect the decision he has made and wish him all the best with the Irish team into the future.”
Commenting on his decision Robbie said;

“I would like to thank everyone involved in Connacht Rugby who has played a part in getting me to where I am today, from my club, Buccaneers, to my school, Marist College and all of the coaching staff in Connacht Rugby itself.
“I was fortunate to be given my chance to play pro rugby at just 19 years of age and it’s been an incredible journey over the past four seasons, culminating in my breakthrough onto the national team.
“I also want to thank the Connacht fans who have always been so supportive of not just me but the team as a whole.
“Connacht Rugby are sitting in a strong position both in the PRO12 and Challenge Cup and I am determined to play my part to ensure we finish the season out on a high.”
