Ireland's John Lacey will referee his first ever RBS 6 Nations match in February, while Alain Rolland is also included in the Elite Panel in what is his last season.
The 23-year-old - who is currently vying with Johnny O'Connor for the Ireland openside berth - suffered the injury after seventy minutes at Thomond Park.
Having delayed linking up with the Ireland squad in Dublin, the Tipperary man had his hamstring assessed yesterday by his province's medical staff, and while disappointment abounded, it proved not to be a tear, but a strain.
Leamy - who made his Six Nations' debut in Ireland's 2005 opener against Italy - will miss Sunday's clash with England, and more-than-likely the visit of champions France to Lansdowne Road on March 12.
Leamy has been in excellent form for Munster of late, scoring two tries in 12 league outings, as well as pocketing three - two against NEC Harlequins - in Alan Gaffney's side's run to a seventh successive Heineken Cup quarter final.
