Only Henshaw and Jonathan Sexton were not involved in the European quarter-finals last weekend and Connacht appear unlikely to qualify for next year's competition either.
But the Athlone native insists he is more than happy at his boyhood club and recently penned a new contract at the Sportsground.
"I love the rugby here and I like Connacht as a home place so I'm settling down here at the moment," he said.
"We've had some great results and I just think this team is coming good now. It would be ideal if we could get in the top six (of the Pro12), but it's not going to be easy.
"I still have three years left in my degree (at NUIG) - that's a vital part of my life as well. I'm studying geography and economics, maybe looking to teaching when I'm finished.
"Wherever Pat (Lam) thinks I'm the best asset to the team is where he will play me. I'm totally in agreement with that. Whether it be 15 or 13, I'm happy to play."
