Leinster Squad Update…

Guinness PRO12 Editor

1 May 2012

The Leinster squad trained in UCD on Tuesday morning ahead of Saturday night’s RaboDirect PRO12 match against the Newport Gwent Dragons in Rodney Parade (KO: 7.30pm).

With top seeding secured – meaning that Leinster will face the league’s fourth-placed side in the RDS in the following weekend’s play off – the Leinster management may opt to freshen the squad for the trip to Wales this weekend.

There are no major injury concerns arising from Sunday’s bruising Heineken Cup semi-final victory over ASM Clermont Auvergne, though scrum-half Isaac Boss may miss the Welsh trip after receiving a knock in the lead up to the crucial try in the weekend.

Isa Nacewa will follow in the footsteps of Felipe Contepomi by becoming only the second ever overseas player to pass the 100-cap mark for the province in his next appearance.

Meanwhile, there are over 10,000 tickets now sold for Leinster’s home PRO12 play-off in the RDS on Saturday, 12th May (KO: 7.30pm, opposition to be confirmed). Tickets are still on sale from www.leinsterrugby.ie
