Leinster head coach Matt O’Connor has admitted that he’s still unsure over the futures of several of his first choice players.

Jamie Heaslip and Sean O’Brien are among Leinster’s Heineken Cup winning stars that are out of contract with the IRFU at the end of the season and reports this morning suggest that O’Brien will travel to France again this week to hold further talks with Top-14 giants Toulon.

"There's still a lot of rugby to be played this year. It hasn't been a frustration or distraction at this point. But at the same time, everyone will be happy when there is clarity," said O'Connor.

Winger Dave Kearney has also revealed today that he’s still undecided about where he’ll be playing next season.

The 24-year-old, who was called up to the extended Ireland squad for the Six Nations, referenced Sean O'Brien and Jamie Heaslip as he admitted that his future was uncertain.

"Like the other two lads I’m still trying to figure out what I’m going to do. It is still ongoing so it’s still up in the air, but hopefully it will be resolved soon," he said.
