The British & Irish Lions have confirmed that Robbie Henshaw has been ruled out of the rest of the Tour due to an injury suffered against the Hurricanes on Tuesday.
Henshaw suffered a torn pectoral muscle in the 31-31 draw with the reigning Super Rugby champions at the Westpac Stadium.
The Leinster Rugby centre started four games on Tour, against the Blues, Highlanders, Chiefs and Hurricanes, playing 258 minutes.
