BBC Sport - Ireland and Ulster flanker Chris Henry set for long absence

Flanker Henry set for long absence

Chris Henry's Ulster team-mate Paddy Jackson and Ireland forwards coach Simon Easterby react to the news that the flanker faces a potentially lengthy absence from the game.

The back-row forward was forced to pull out of Ireland's win over South Africa on 8 November and tests revealed that he has a blocked blood vessel in his brain.

Despite the diagnosis, Easterby is confident that Henry will be back in a green shirt before long.
