Injury forces North, Henshaw out of Lions tour
INJURY UPDATE: Welsh wing George North and Ireland centre Robbie Henshaw have both been ruled out of the rest of the British and Irish Lions tour in New Zealand with injuries.
The B&I Lions management said North and Henshaw both picked up the injuries during their team's 31-all draw with the Hurricanes this past Tuesday and would return home.
North tore a hamstring and Henshaw ripped a pectoral muscle.
The Hurricanes game was the last of the Lions' mid-week matches, with only two Tests remaining on the tour, including one in Wellington this Saturday.
North scored a try against the Hurricanes and the giant wing was considered an outside chance of figuring in the remaining Tests as coach Warren Gatland looks for a greater physical presence.
The Lions trail 0-1 in the three-Test series.
