Leinster board the plane for South Africa this evening without two more senior internationals after first choice second-rows Devin Toner and Scott Fardy remained in Dublin as their wives are expecting their first children in the coming weeks.

The locks, who have started both of the province’s Guinness PRO14 wins to date, will join an illustrious list of absentees in a weakened Leinster squad who leave for Johannesburg this evening.

Already without his 2017 Lions and a number of injured players like Garry Ringrose, Leo Cullen lost Rob Kearney and Dan Leavy in Friday night’s win over Cardiff Blues while Jamie Heaslip is still slowly recovering from his back surgery.

The province have also confirmed that second-row Ian Nagle will undergo surgery on his pectoral muscle and will be out for around three months, leaving the second-row cupboard a little bare for the trip to South Africa.

Cullen can call on fit-again Ireland international James Ryan who is joined by Ross Molony and Mick Kearney as the engine room options.

Joey Carbery, Dave Kearney and Fergus McFadden are all included having recovered for from their injury issues to make the long journey south.

Along with Italian side Zebre, Leinster are the first European team to play a PRO14 match on South African soil.

They face the Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth on Saturday, before taking on the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Friday week.

Leinster squad to tour South Africa:

Forwards

Michael Bent, Ed Byrne, Jack Conan, Sean Cronin, Max Deegan, Peter Dooley, Cian Healy, Mick Kearney, Ross Molony, Jordi Murphy, Andrew Porter, Rhys Ruddock, James Ryan, James Tracy, Josh van der Flier.

Backs

Adam Byrne, Ross Byrne, Joey Carbery, Barry Daly, Dave Kearney, Jamison Gibson-Park, Jordan Larmour, Cathal Marsh, Rory O’Loughlin, Fergus McFadden, Luke McGrath, Isa Nacewa, Noel Reid.
