Ulster’s Iain Henderson with Stephen Archer and John Hodnett of Munster

Having only turned 30 earlier this season, Ulster skipper Iain Henderson hardly qualifies as the northern province’s elder statesman yet the second-row forward knows full well on which side of the squad’s generational divide he falls.

A decade on from his debut as a shaggy-haired and galloping flanker, when he looks at the likes of James Hume, Robert Baloucoune and Mike Lowry making their mark on a team now routinely back in the sharp end of competitions, he can no doubt draw some parallels to his own career.
