Robbie Henshaw will be playing for Leinster next season.

The Ireland centre confirmed his departure from Connacht on Sunday and an IRFU statement this afternoon confirmed that the 22-year-old is moving to Leinster this summer on a three-year deal.

Henshaw said: “I would like to thank Connacht Rugby, the IRFU and Leinster for allowing me time to consider my future.

“This has been a long and difficult process and while I am sorry to be leaving Connacht I look forward to the next chapter of my rugby career at Leinster.

“The support I have enjoyed from the fans in the Sportsground and throughout the province is something that I really value and I want to thank them for four great years.”

Leinster coach Leo Cullen said: “We are delighted to have secured Robbie’s signature for the next three seasons.

“Robbie is a huge talent and we have all seen that over the last few weeks and months with Ireland in the 6 Nations and during the World Cup.  We look forward to welcoming him into Leinster when this season is over and I am sure that our supporters would echo that view.”
