British and Irish Lions star Robbie Henshaw was ‘Mic’d Up’ by Sky Sports for his return game for Leinster against Munster yesterday and it showed a side to the young centre that fans might not have been familiar with.


The former Connacht man might have been a little on the rusty side but it didn’t stop rallying the trips in Leinster midfield amid a massive crowd in the Aviva Stadium.

The player mic also picks up his self-appraisal at the end: “Your first match back is always a horrific one”.

Sexton broke Felipe Contepomi’s record of 1,225 points at the Aviva Stadium, landing three penalties and converting both of Rory O’Loughlin’s tries as Leinster joined second-placed Ulster on 23 points in Conference B.

Ian Keatley scored a breakaway try in a first half which ended with Leinster 14-7 to the good and Munster were unable to pull off a fightback despite Keith Earls’ second-half double in front of a crowd of 46,374 in Dublin.
