Leinster release injury updates for Sexton, O’Brien & others

from Leinster Rugby…

Leinster Squad Update

Sean O'Brien
As outlined by Head Coach Leo Cullen in the pre-match media event last Thursday and again mentioned to Sunday media after the game on Friday evening, after further investigation during the Return to Play Protocols and having met with an ear specialist, Sean is now also being treated for an inner ear issue - vestibular impairment, which affects his balance. He took a limited part in training today and will be assessed on an ongoing basis.

Richardt Strauss
Richardt has passed the Return to Play Protocols, trained today and is available for selection this weekend.

Rob Kearney
Rob trained today and we are hopeful that having been ruled out of Friday's game and having had a few extra days of treatment that he will be available for selection this weekend after his hamstring issue.

Luke McGrath
Luke has a medial strain and will be out of the game this weekend. However he is expected to be back in contention for the visit to Toulon.

Noel Reid
Noel hasn't broken any bone in his ankle but there is ligament damage. He is waiting for the results of a further scan before seeing a specialist later this week to decide on the best course of action.

Johnny Sexton
Johnny took a bang to the back and was only suffering from some stiffness after the game. He is available for selection this weekend.
