RaboDirectPro12: Leinster primed for Munster

Updated: March 26, 2012

Leinster have mixed news on the injury front ahead of their Rabo Direct Pro 12 clash with Munster at Thomond Park on Saturday night.

Prop Jamie Hagan looks likely to miss the game with rib damage.  There is better news however regarding tight-head prop Nathan White (bruised cheek) who looks set to be fit and he will be monitored by medical staff this week.

Leo Cullen and Brian O’Driscoll both came through their first appearances since their respective (two month and four month) injury lay-offs unscathed in a game which also marked Brad Thorn’s debut – against the Ospreys last Friday night.

David Kearney shipped a bad knock to the eye during the game with the Ospreys, but he will be available for selection for the weekend.

Gordon D’Arcy, Cian Healy, Jamie Heaslip, Rob Kearney, Eoin Reddan, Sean O’Brien, Mike Ross and Jonathan Sexton are all set to return to action following their participation in the Six Nations.

Gordon D’Arcy will make his 200th appearance for Leinster (a figure bettered only by Shane Horgan with 207) while Luke Fitzgerald is set to become the 18th player to make his 100th cap for the province.
