Leinster trio ready for comebacks
Dave Kearney, Fergus McFadden and Jordi Murphy are all back in contention to play for Leinster against Edinburgh at The RDS on Friday night.
Coach Matt O'Connor will wait to see how these three come out of training before making a definitive decision about their availability.
It will come a week too soon for openside flanker Shane Jennings, although this is partly offset by the return to fitness of 2014 Ireland U20 seven Dan Leavy
In Ireland camp, prop Jack McGrath trained fully out at Carton House and Gordon D'Arcy will be assessed in the days ahead.
Full-back Rob Kearney and prop Mike Ross plan to train next week.
Munster prop James Cronin is waiting on the results from a specialist about the severity of his ankle injury.
Ulster's Tommy Bowe and Stuart Olding will both follow return-to-play procedures from concussion.
