LEINSTER duo Noel Reid and James Ryan will undergo Head Injury Assessments ahead of this weekend's PRO 14 championship tie in Glasgow.

Both men were removed during Saturday's win in Belfast against Ulster and will be further assessed this week before a decision is made on their availability.

Dan Leavy picked up a knock to his hip against Ulster and will also be monitored this week while Fergus McFadden, not risked due to a tight hamstring, may be available for the Scotstoun trip.

Sean O'Brien, Richardt Strauss, Rory O'Loughlin and Rob Kearney all came through the game with no issue.

There is still no specific news available on the return of Jamie Heaslip from his troublesome back injury
