Leinster Squad Update…

Guinness PRO12 Editor

7 May 2012


The Leinster squad trained in UCD on Monday afternoon ahead of Saturday night’s RaboDirect PRO12 play off visit of Glasgow Warriors to the RDS (KO: 7.35pm).

There are no fresh injury concerns from Saturday night’s victory over the Dragons and the province are expected to be boosted by the return of all of the players who were rested last weekend, after having defeated ASM Clermont Auvergne the previous Sunday.

Isa Nacewa is on the cusp of making his 100th appearance for the province – and will join seven other players in the squad to pass the same landmark – as he was an unused replacement in Rodney Parade in a game which marked Ireland Under-20 scrum-half Luke McGrath’s senior debut. Academy player McGrath became the 49th player to represent the province so far this season.

Isaac Boss is in the frame after missing the Dragons win with a minor knock while Eoin O’Malley (calf) will continue to be assessed this week ahead of Friday’s midday team announcement.

Ticket sales for Saturday’s game have passed the 11,500 mark and are on sale now from, the Leinster Rugby Store (Donnybrook), Spar (Donnybrook) and Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.
