Leinster will have a virtually full squad to choose from as they aim to complete a clean sweep of Champions Cup pool wins in Montpellier this weekend, from which they only need one point to ensure that both their semi-final and quarter-final ties will be played at home.

Jonathan Sexton was given the all-clear after taking a heavy fall in the process of scoring his side's fifth try in last Sunday's 55-19 destruction of Glasgow Warriors.

Adam Byrne is the unlucky absentee as he underwent a knee procedure last Friday afternoon and there were no fresh updates on longer term casualties such as Jamie Heaslip, Rhys Ruddock, Tom Daly, James Traacy and Garry Ringrose.
