Depending on who is out with covid, and assuming the internationals are still rested, we could see something like:LEINSTER WILL HAVE full-back Jimmy O’Brien available for their Guinness Pro14 clash with Connacht this weekend.
An update issued by the province this afternoon confirmed that the 24-year-old is in contention to play on Saturday at the RDS [KO 7.35pm].
O’Brien has completed the graduated return-to-play protocols, having sustained a knock during the Heineken Champions Cup win against Northampton Saints.
Harry Byrne won’t feature in the inter-provincial fixture due to the back issue that arose for the 21-year–old out-half during the warm-up ahead of the Northampton game.
Rhys Ruddock may also miss out as the rib injury picked up by the 30-year-old back-row forward during the same game requires further assessment.
