Leinster wing Fergus McFadden is set to return from injury against Zebre in the Guinness PRO 14 this weekend after recovering from a torn hamstring.

McFadden hasn't played since early October, missing out on a number of important games for club and country. The 32-year-old has returned to full training this week, and is likely to feature against Zebre on Saturday.

Dan Leavy still isn't fully fit after being sidelined with a calf injury, and will continue his rehab, as will wing Joe Tomane, who Stuart Lancaster said is a 'week or two' away from being back in contention for selection.

Centre Garry Ringrose has returned to Leinster to continue his recovery from a hamstring injury, and will be further assessed by the IRFU medical team next week.
