Murray, Henshaw to miss All Blacks clash

Steve Hansen and the All Blacks landed in Dublin on Sunday evening

Conor Murray and Robbie Henshaw have been ruled out of Ireland's remaining Guinness Series matches against New Zealand and the USA.

The IRFU's brief injury update which ruled Murray - not originally named in Ireland's squad - out of the games against the world champions and U.S. allows the narrative to move on.

The hype surrounding the clash between Hansen's World Cup winners and Joe Schmidt's Six Nations champions has been growing steadily for the past 12 months as the consistent Irish have risen to number two in the global rankings. But the guys that are available will do a great job. "Everyone seems to find another 10 percent when they play us because it is a good story if you can beat the All Blacks and everyone gets excited by that".

That record will be something he will be keen to improve upon and he makes no secret of how you can not treat the world champions just like any other game. "These are the big games that you do all the work for and the practice for".

"Look, he's a world-class player and three guys behind him are chasing him but I think they did well at the weekend, "Marms" and Luke. Hopefully, we'll see him back soon, I'm not sure how soon but obviously a quality player, we'd hope to have him back.Munster or Ireland whenever he can". I think the more time you spend in the environment here the more comfortable you get and the better you get.

Centre Robbie Henshaw will also miss the duel between the two top ranked teams in the world - as well as the United States match a week on Saturday - after suffering a hamstring strain while warming-up shortly before kick-off against the Pumas last Saturday.

Sexton admitted that Henshaw is a big loss to the team.

"We want to make the most of it and see where we are really".

"You don't get a chance, you know, they've been number one team in the world for nine years, you've got a small chance to change that".

"There was probably bits in the set-piece from the forwards' point of view, bits in the backline D from our point of view, bits of not taking some opportunities we created".

"They have all been tough, close games".

"It is one and two, so whoever wins will be the best side in the world regardless of rankings", Hansen told reporters in Dublin.
