It was mostly positive news on the injury front today with only Peadar Timmins a concern from the game at the weekend ahead of the visit of 4th placed Scarlets on Saturday.

Timmins went off the field early for a Head Injury Assessment against the Dragons and did not return. The Wicklow man will as a result enter the return to play protocols and will be assessed as the week goes on.

Fergus McFadden, Rhys Ruddock and Noel Reid all came through the game with no issues having returned from various injuries.

In other injury news Rory O’Loughlin will be assessed again this week for an AC shoulder injury picked up during the win against Edinburgh and while Tom Daly has stepped up his rehabilitation programme from a knee injury, he will be unavailable for selection.

There was no update on Josh van der Flier (shoulder), Isa Nacewa (knee), Dominic Ryan (knee), Dave Kearney (toe), Sean Cronin (hamstring) and Jordi Murphy (ACL) who are all unavailable for selection.

The Scarlets have only lost four games all season in the Guinness PRO12 championship and beat Leinster 38-29 in Parc y Scarlets earlier this season. They are currently on a run on 12 wins from their last 13 PRO12 games, with a win away to Munster last weekend their most recent outing.

Tickets for the game are still on sale here and will be on sale again from the ticket office on match day at the Anglesea Road ticket office from 6.00pm.
