McFadden back for Treviso

CENTRE Fergus McFadden is back in contention after a dead leg for Leinster's PRO12 visit to Benetton Treviso on Saturday, writes Des Berry.

There is uncertainty over lock Damian Browne's return from a shoulder injury. A decision on his availability will be confirmed at Friday's team announcement.

Meanwhile, out-half Mat Berquist (knee) has stepped up his rehabilitation in recent weeks and it is hoped that he will be available over the Christmas period.

It is thought that Dominic Ryan, who captained the 'A' side away against Esher RFC, will be out for between four and six weeks after sustaining an ankle injury.
