Iain Henderson

After going close to a significant Six Nations win with 14 men, Iain Henderson was all too aware that close was all it was.

After two months without any rugby because of a knee injury, the Ulster skipper found himself thrust into yesterday's 21-16 reverse to Wales after only 23 minutes.

By the time he made his earlier than anticipated return to action when replacing the injured James Ryan, his team-mates had already weathered 10 minutes playing a man down.
