Pic: Great news as Chris Henry is back training with Ulster following his recent surgery

The flanker recently underwent surgery “to repair a defect in his heart wall” but is back in training already it seems.

The last few weeks have been very happy ones for the Irish rugby team but amidst all the goodwill, there was also plenty of concern for Ulster flanker Chris Henry after his recent health scare.

Henry was originally part of Ireland’s squad for the November Internationals but was forced to withdraw from the team on the morning of the South Africa game after suffering what was first thought to be a severe migraine.

It was later revealed that this small migraine was in fact a temporary blockage of a small blood vessel for which he required surgery.

We're delighted to see that Henry is fit and back doing what he does best at the Kingspan Stadium. Take it easy now Chris!
