The 27-year-old picked up the ball from a Johnny Sexton switch in midfield and beat four defenders down the left hand touchline at Stade de France to score in the corner just before the hour mark.
🗣 “What a solo run, Robbie Henshaw!”
If Ireland win the #SixNations, this will be the moment that gets played back over, and over again! Great try.

France’s bonus point win secured the Six Nations title for England and full match highlights are available below:
Henshaw has earned 45 caps for Ireland since making his debut in 2013.
WHAT a try by Robbie Henshaw. Running back against the grain, beating multiple defenders and finishing it off all on his own.

Super try from Robbie Henshaw! Was in the middle of saying that Ireland are now playing like they’ve not met each other before since the restart and Henshaw goes on a mazy run and scores!
Much needed boost. Two more tries… #FRAvIREADVERTISEMENT
