Ireland and British and Irish Lions centre Robbie Henshaw has committed his future with Irish Rugby Football Union and Leinster Rugby after signing a new contract until July 2025.

Henshaw started his career with Connacht in 2012 but made a switch to Leinster ahead of the 2016/17 season. Since then he has gone to represent the Irish province 63 times scoring 14 tries and has went on to win a a European Champions Cup and four PRO14 titles.

“I’m delighted to have signed a contract extension with Ireland and Leinster Rugby," he told in a statement released by the IRFU.

"We are lucky to have such high quality centres in Ireland and it is a really competitive position which makes it very exciting. There is so much to look forward to over the coming months and I want to play a role in achieving success for both teams.”

His debut with Ireland came in 2013 against the USA and has featured for them in 57 Tests. He also was part of the Irish squad that clinched the Six Nations titles two times and played five World Cup games that came in the 2015 and 2019 editions.

The 28-year-old was included in the British and Irish Lions' squad for the tour of South Africa last year where he featured in all three Tests.

IRFU Performance Director David Nucifora is delighted with Henshaw committing to Irish Rugby for another three years.

“In 2021 Robbie showed that he was one of the best players in world rugby with dominant performances for both Ireland and the British and Irish Lions.

"The early part of this season was disrupted with a couple of injuries but he is a player who contributes massively to both Leinster and Ireland and he will play a big role in delivering the ambitions of both squads this season and in the years to come.”
