Tom Denton, Noel Reid and Richardt Strauss will miss this Friday's clash with Zebre at the RDS after suffering concussion injuries in the defeat to the Dragons last Sunday.

All three are subject to return to play protocols but will not be recovered in time for the visit of the Italian side.

There was better news for Eoin Reddan, Zane Kirchner and Gordon D'Arcy.

Reddan has recovered from a medial knee injury picked up in the Champions Cup meeting with Wasps last month and is available as is South African Zane Kirchner who has recovered from a leg injury.

D'Arcy is back at full training and will be considered for selection.
