Leinster Rugby squad update

Updated: December 5, 2011

Joe Schmidt has no fresh injury concerns as his Leinster side trained in UCD this afternoon ahead of their crucial double header against Bath in the Heineken Cup over the next two weekends.

Fergus McFadden, whose seven successful kicks at goal continued his 100% ratio for the season to date, was replaced midway during the second half by Rob Kearney but the knock he took is not serious and he will be available for selection.

Along with McFadden the likes of Gordon D’Arcy, Luke Fitzgerald, Jamie Heaslip and Kevin McLaughlin will all be back in the mix after being rested at separate intervals over the last fortnight.

Last Friday’s win also marked Sean O’Brien’s 60th Leinster appearance while Eoin Reddan’s next cap will be his 50thin Leinster colours. Jonny Sexton, who has kicked 22 points in the opening two rounds of the Heineken Cup, also brought his season tally to 70 points in 5 games so far.

The return leg, which will take place on Saturday week in the Aviva Stadium, has seen 40,000 tickets sold already. The remaining tickets can also be bought from www.leinsterrugby.ie, the Leinster Rugby Store (Donnybrook), Spar (Donnybrook) and Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.
