TADHG FURLONG is confident that he will recover from his hamstring problem in time to face Wales on Saturday week.

The tighthead prop limped off after just three minutes of Ireland's win over Italy last weekend, prompting fears that he may miss some or all of the remaining Six Nations games.

Instead, he has confirmed to independent.ie that he will travel to Athlone with the rest of the squad tomorrow night and is hopeful of playing against Warren Gatland's side.

"It feels really good, it just tightened up a little bit and in that situation you just err on the side of caution," he said at a Vodafone event earlier today.

"I'm pretty confident, more than pretty confident of being available for Wales.

"I'm going to Athlone tomorrow; with it you probably need a small bit of strengthening up work but nothing overly too worrying."

Leinster have confirmed that neither Garry Ringrose or Seán O'Brien will be considered for selection for Saturday's Guinness PRO14 game against Scarlets.

Schmidt had expressed the hope that one or either of the injured pair could be available next week. It is understood that neither player will travel to Athlone for the mini-camp.

Robbie Henshaw has been ruled out of the Six Nations with the shoulder injury he suffered against Wales.

He has undergone surgery but Leinster have not given up hope of having him back before the end of the season.
