BOD a big doubt for Leinster's Heineken Cup opener
Leinster rate star centre Brian O'Driscoll as having a 50-50 chance of being fit for next Saturday's Heineken opener against the Ospreys in Swansea.
O'Driscoll is nursing a calf muscle strain, and Leinster say at this stage he has not been ruled out of the selection mix.
South Africa international back Zane Kirchner could also be in the frame for next weekend after linking up with his new team-mates following commitments in the Rugby Championship.
