Connacht say that Robbie Henshaw is still facing another few weeks out of action.

The centre had another scan on his hand fracture last week and the tests have shown that it still has not healed fully, which means the Irish international will miss this weekend's Challenge Cup match against Brive.

According to Connacht, "The surgeon has advised another 1-2 weeks before the Ireland international returns to match action".

Andrew Browne is facing up to six weeks out with an A/C fracture while Kieran Marmion and Craig Ronaldson are being monitored this week for hip and shoulder injuries respectively.

However, Pat Lam's squad have been boosted by the return to fitness of Denis Buckley, Eoin McKeon and Darragh Leader.
