Leinster remain hopeful that Brian O'Driscoll will be available for their Heineken Cup quarter-final trip to Toulon this Sunday as they reported an otherwise clean bill of health.

The former Ireland captain injured his neck during the second-half of Saturday's win over Munster at Lansdowne Road, while he also has a calf problem that necessitated him wearing compression socks as he watched training at the province's UCD base.

Props Cian Healy, Jack McGrath and Martin Moore are all expected to be available after returning for yesterday's session, while Dave Kearney and Rhys Ruddock are also likely to be involved after missing the Pro12 clash.

O'Driscoll was joined on the sidelines by Gordon D'Arcy, Ian Madigan and Eoin Reddan after their exertions at the weekend as Leinster take advantage of the extra day's rest afforded by the scheduling of Sunday's game.

Although the 35-year-old had looked unsteady on his feet at the weekend, Leinster insisted that he had not suffered a concussion.

"Brian came off with a knock to his neck/shoulder area. He should be fine," skills and kicking coach Richie Murphy said.

"There's no head injury. We're obviously going to manage him today. We are still within that 48 hours post-game period so we just want to rest him.
