Leinster Rugby head coach Leo Cullen has issued an injury update ahead of Saturday’s BKT United Rugby Championship game at the RDS Arena against the Cell C Sharks (KO: 5.05pm – live on RTÉ Sport, Premier Sports and URC TV).

Tickets for the game are still on sale HERE.

Cullen confirmed that James Ryan (hamstring), Will Connors (back) and Liam Turner (toe) would all train as normal this week with Ryan and Connors coming through the game against Ulster Rugby with no issues.

However, Caelan Doris (Graduated Return to Play Protocols), Rónan Kelleher (hamstring) and Dave Kearney (adductor) would all need further assessment this week before a final decision was made on their availability for the game on Saturday.

Unfortunately Cullen confirmed that Jamison Gibson-Park was definitely out of contention for the weekend with a hamstring injury picked up at training last week.

There are no further updates from Cullen on Ciarán Frawley (shoulder), Hugo Keenan (abdominal and knee injury), James Lowe (calf), James Tracy (neck), Charlie Ryan (knee) and Tommy O’Brien (knee).
