Joe Schmidt has no fresh injury concerns as his Leinster side prepare to face the Cardiff Blues at the RDS this Friday night.
The squad trained in UCD today for the first time since their impressive win away to Treviso last Saturday in the RaboPro 12 and Schmidt will be able to select a number of players that missed the trip to Italy.
Amongst them should be the likes of Isa Nacewa, who celebrated the birth of his third daughter, Lucy, last week, as well as Richardt Strauss and Heinke van der Merwe. Some of the Irish International contingent may also be available.
Already over 15,600 tickets have been sold for Friday’s game and tickets are still on sale from www.leinsterrugby.ie, the Leinster Rugby Store (Donnybrook), Spar (Donnybrook) and Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.
The team is expected to be announced on Thursday lunchtime.
