The Leinster Rugby squad trained in UCD today as preparations stepped up ahead of the visit of the Glasgow Warriors on Saturday to the RDS (KO: 8.30pm).

Kevin McLaughlin, who picked up a facial injury in the win against the Cardiff Blues, has been ruled out of the game on Saturday. He had a procedure yesterday in St. Vincent’s Hospital and is expected to be back in contention for the Zebre game at the end of March.

Otherwise, there were no ill effects from the Cardiff game last Thursday and indeed the players released from the Irish camp including Martin Moore, Jordi Murphy, Fergus McFadden, Sean Cronin and Jack McGrath also trained as normal.

The team to face Glasgow will be announced at midday on Friday afternoon.

Tickets for the game are still available from, the Leinster Rugby Store (Donnybrook), Spar (Donnybrook), Active Sports (Blackrock) as well as Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.
