Leinster hoping for O'Driscoll boost

SHARE

Leinster expect to be in a position to make a call on Brian O’Driscoll for Saturday’s Pro12 Final against Ulster.

The Ireland veteran would be a welcome boost for the province after missing last Friday’s Challenge Cup Final victory due to a back injury.

Sean O’Brien (bruised knee) and Fergus McFadden (neck) are the other injury concerns for the province as they prepare for the final game of the season.

Ireland hooker Richardt Strauss (shoulder) was replaced late on against Stade Francais having previously come on for Sean Cronin – who scored his second successive try in European Finals – but the medical team are hopeful that he will be available.

A number of players who were rested after a rigorous last few weeks including Kevin McLaughlin could also come back into the frame.

Isa Nacewa and Jonathan Sexton, meanwhile, will play their final games for Leinster ahead of their departures. Nacewa is retiring while Sexton, who passed the 1,000-point milestone following his 14-point haul at the weekend, will join Racing Metro.

The Leinster team to face Ulster will be named on Friday.
