Leinster wait on O'Driscoll

BRIAN O'DRISCOLL is a doubt for Leinster's Heineken Cup quarter-final clash with Clermont Auvergne on April 9 after the Ireland captain twisted his right knee in the 23-20 defeat to Scotland at Croke Park.

O'Driscoll and fellow Leinster centre Gordon D'Arcy (groin) had scans after the match, as did full-back Geordan Murphy, following a heavy collision with Johnny Beattie as the Scotland No 8 charged over for a first-half try.

Leinster are expected to rest their international contingent for next weekend's Magners League clash with Connacht. They will then clash with Munster on Good Friday, a week before the Heineken Cup quarter-finals.
