A hip problem forced O'Connell out of the Munster side for last weekend's Magners League win over the Ospreys, but the province's captain is ready to return.
Kidney said: "I'd be hopeful Tomas will be available for selection. They're all finely tuned athletes but I would imagine he'll be okay. Paul (O'Connell) and Ronan (O'Gara) took a full part in training and they're all systems go."
