Rob Kearney and Jamie Heaslip remain unavailable for Leinster's Guinness PRO 12 championship semi-final against the Scarlets at the RDS this Friday evening but Sean O'Brien may return to action should a return to training be completed successfully.

O'Brien will return to full training this week from the tight hamstring that has recently ruled him out of action for more than a month.

Robbie Henshaw picked up a rib injury late in the second-half against Clermont and will be assessed as the week progresses.

So too Sean Cronin, who picked up a neck injury in that game. Dominic Ryan will not play again this season after undergoing a procedure on his bicep last week.
