Ian Nagle was withdrawn for a Head Injury Assessment in the second half against Munster and was being assessed again today.

Otherwise it was a positive injury update after the game against Munster.

Cullen also gave an update on Johnny Sexton and Rob Kearney ahead of the weekend.

Sexton will again be out in Sports Surgery Clinic in Santry this week and is being monitored closely but he will be reintroduced back into the rugby programme this week and in fact has already trained in UCD today.

Kearney also trained in UCD today and his ankle injury will be reviewed further this week ahead of selection this weekend.

With over 17,000 tickets already sold for the New Year’s Eve game, just over 1,000 tickets remain for the meeting of 3rd versus 4th in the Guinness PRO12 and they are expected to be sold in the next few days.

The remaining tickets can be purchased at leinsterrugby.ie/tickets
