Mixed news for Leinster on injury front


Leinster have received mixed news on the injury front ahead of their PRO14 final meeting with Ulster at the Aviva on Saturday (LIVE on eir sport 1 from 6.30pm).

The Blues, who are looking to win the PRO14 title for the third year in succession, have been boosted by the news that international lock James Ryan is available for selection.

However, Ryan's potential return has been tempered by the possible loss of full-back Jordan Larmour who is still receiving treatment for a head injury suffered during the 13-3 semi-final victory over Munster on Friday night.

Larmour was forced to leave the field early in the second half after an accidental collision with JJ Hanrahan, which could mean that veteran Rob Kearney could be set for a recall to the starting XV. 

Ryan hasn't played since injuring his shoulder in Ireland's Six Nations defeat to England at Twickenham in March. The 24-year-old underwent surgery on the injury during lockdown and his return would come as a major boost to the Leinster ranks.

Prop Tadgh Furlong and back-row Dan Leavy are approaching full fitness and could feature as well.
