Nacewa to miss Treviso test but Carr and Van Der Merwe should return
LEINSTER will definitely be without Isa Nacewa for this weekend’s Rabodirect Pro12 meeting with Benetton Treviso but Fionn Carr and Heinke Van Der Merwe should return for the Blues.
The Heineken Cup champions have no fresh injury concerns following on from last Friday’s promising 26-12 win over the Cardiff Blues in the Welsh capital.
Isa Nacewa will not be returning to action this weekend after the recurrence of an arm injury sustained in January and is unlikely to be involved this Saturday.
Fionn Carr and Heinke Van Der Merwe, who were late withdrawals from the Leinster squad last Friday, are expected to be fit for the visit of the Italian side.
A number of players, who were on international duty but saw limited game time, could also be available to the province this weekend.
Over 15,500 tickets have been sold for the game at the RDS
