Head coach Leo Cullen has issued an injury update ahead of the URC clash with Cell C Sharks at Hollywoodbets Kings Park on Saturday (KO 5.15pm Irish time – LIVE on TG4, Premier Sports and URC TV).

Following the 56-20 victory over Connacht at Aviva Stadium on Good Friday, Cullen has reported that both Andrew Porter and Rónan Kelleher have come through their return from injuries without any issue.
