Grand Slam winners Fiona Coghlan and Nora Stapelton have returned the Women's RBS 6 Nations trophy to Chief Executive John Feehan at the Six Nations offices in Dublin.
David Kearney received on-field attention for a dislocated finger, but the Louth-born outside back finished the game and is expected to be joined in the panel this week by his elder brother Rob and several other Ireland internationals whose return to provincial action were managed last week.
Among the possible returnees for Saturday's encounter with Ulster are Cian Healy, Jamie Heaslip, Sean O'Brien and Mike Ross, while the province are hopeful that Fergus McFadden (rib) will also be available for selection.
Gordon D'Arcy and Quinn Roux both successfully came through their respective comebacks from injury last Saturday. Second row Tom Denton is also available for selection.
Saturday's interpro tie is set to be a sell-out with the last remaining tickets on sale now online here. You can also buy them from the Leinster Rugby Store (Donnybrook), Spar (Donnybrook) and Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.
