The Leinster squad trained on Monday afternoon in UCD ahead of Saturday’s Magners League clash with Munster at the Aviva Stadium (KO: 7.30pm).

A decision on Jonathan Sexton (quad) will be made at the team announcement on Thursday afternoon, but Ed O’Donoghue (knee) has been ruled out for this weekend’s game. Other than that Leinster reported no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s derby and Nathan Hines is also expected to return to the panel this weekend.

Rob Kearney made his 100th appearance for the province in the Edinburgh game and is now one of seven players in the current panel to have passed the century milestone.

Saturday’s clash in the Aviva Stadium will break the Magners League record of 48,000 which was previously set in Lansdowne Road at ‘The Last Stand’ on December 31st, 2006. Just over 1,000 tickets are on sale for Leinster v Munster and are still available from, Spar (Donnybrook) and the Leinster Rugby Store (Donnybrook).

Supporters are asked to arrive early and use Public Transport on Saturday. There are full details of the coloured entrance and exit routes into the ground available on under the ‘directions & maps’ section. Gates open at 6pm.
