Kidney determined to keep options open


On the forward front, John Hayes took a bang to the head and Leo Cullen rolled an ankle in last weekend's 33-10 loss to France. However, Kidney is not ruling any of the walking wounded out of his selection plans .

"Stephen Ferris and Leo Cullen didn't take any part in the last two days, but we'd expect them to be available for next week," said Kidney. "John Hayes had all his check-ups, he was given the all-clear yesterday evening so he trained this morning and Brian O'Driscoll trained away fully."

Prop Tom Court was withdrawn from Ulster's match against the Dragons tonight after injuring a rib but trained with the national squad and Kidney said he's "okay to go."
