No new injury concerns for Leinster

from Leinster Rugby...

After training in UCD today Leo Cullen has reported no major injury concerns from last Friday's game against Moseley RFC.

However ruled out of the first Guinness PRO12 game of the year against Edinburgh are Ed Byrne, Mick Kearney and Rhys Ruddock. 

Ed Byrne ruptured his patellar tendon in the early minutes of the second half against Ulster Rugby last Friday week in the first of Leinster's pre-season friendlies. Ed had his operation on Friday of last week. The operation was a success and while it was the same knee that kept him out for the second half of last season with an ACL injury, both are not connected and he is expected to make a full recovery. 

Rhys Ruddock and Mick Kearney continue their rehab from arm and foot injuries respectively but are getting closer to a return to action.
