Leinster have a number of injury concerns ahead of Friday night's PRO14 clash with the Ospreys at the RDS (LIVE on eir sport 1 from 8pm).
Luke McGrath was withdrawn during the win over Zebre in Parma last weekend for a Head Injury Assessment and is now following the Graduated Return to Play Protocols ahead of a possible return on Friday.
Both Cian Kelleher and Jimmy O’Brien will definitely miss out, however, as both picked up minor hamstring injuries in Italy.
One a more positive note, Ciarán Frawley is due to train fully this week after recovering from a shoulder injury, while Sean Cronin and Vakh Abdaladze will require further assessment to see if they are ready to return.
Leinster head coach Leo Cullen also confirmed that David Hawkshaw will be unavailable for a number of weeks after undergoing a procedure for an ankle injury suffered in the win against Glasgow Warriors a fortnight ago.
Tommy O’Brien (ankle), Adam Byrne (quad), Caelan Doris (concussive symptoms), Dan Leavy (knee), Conor O’Brien (knee) and Max Deegan (knee) all remain on the long-term injured list and are unavailable for selection.
