Leinster Rugby Head Coach Leo Cullen has given an injury update ahead of this Saturday’s Guinness PRO14 game against Ulster Rugby in Kingspan Stadium (KO 7.35pm, live on eir Sport & RTÉ Radio).
There are a number of concerns from the game against Glasgow Warriors on Sunday but Jimmy O’Brien came through his first game back from a hamstring injury with no issues and is expected to be again available for selection this week.
Three players will require further assessment this week before a final decision will be made on their involvement.
Ciarán Frawley injured his shoulder in the warm-up against Glasgow Warriors and will be further assessed as will Cian Kelleher who received stitches to a facial injury in the first half.
Finally, Harry Byrne was removed for a Head Injury Assessment against Glasgow Warriors and will now follow the Graduated Return to Play Protocols this week.
There was no new injury update on the following players who remain unavailable for selection:
Tommy O’Brien (ankle), Adam Byrne (quad), Caelan Doris (concussive symptoms), Dan Leavy (knee), Conor O’Brien (knee), Max Deegan (knee) and Vakh Abdaladze (back).
