McEntee has full-back headache against Pontypridd

Leinster 'A' coach Colin McEntee will have to wait until closer to the kick-off to see who will slot in at full-back against Pontypridd in the British & Irish Cup quarter-final at Donnybrook tomorrow afternoon.

Unfortunately, Andrew Conway's season has been interrupted, once again, by a minor knock, opening the door for Darren Hudson on the right wing.

There is still a possibility that Dave Kearney could be available for full-back. The call-up of Jamie Hagan to make his Heineken Cup debut means former Waikato captain Nathan White will start at tight-head.

Leinster: AN Other; D Hudson, B Macken, C O'Shea, A Boyle; N Reid, J Cooney; J McGrath, A Dundon, N White, N Keogh, M Flanagan, C Ruddock (capt), J Murphy, L Auva'a.

Pontypridd: H Thomson; L Williams, G Dacey, D Lockyer, M Nuthall; S Humberstone, R Downes; C Phillips, H Dowden, P Palmer, C Hill, R Savage, C Dicomidis (capt), W O'Connor, D Godfrey.
