Scarlets Next Up For Leinster

Scarlets Next Up For Leinster

The Leinster squad trained at UCD on Monday as they build towards Friday night’s Magners League clash against the Scarlets.

Though the Leinster players who started for Ireland against Scotland on Sunday are unavailable for selection, the province may have the opportunity to welcome back a number of internationals later this week from Ireland camp including the likes of Leo Cullen and Fergus McFadden.

Nathan Hines could also feature for Leinster after coming on a replacement against Ireland.

Aside from the usual bumps and bruises coming out of the 30-5 victory over Benetton Treviso last Friday, Stan Wright successfully came through his first start of the season in a match which saw Ian McKinley score his first senior try.

The fitness of Stephen Keogh (ankle) will be assessed later in the week after he was withdrawn coming up to half-time against the Italians.

David Kearney’s first half try was his fourth in his last three Magners League outings, while Isa Nacewa’s 15 points came from a 100% place-kicking display for the 28-year-old in his first match as captain.

Andrew Conway’s late try was the 19-year-old’s third in eight league games so far this season.

Over 14,000 tickets have now been sold for Friday’s game against the Scarlets at the RDS.

They and available to purchase online here, and from Spar (Donnybrook), the Leinster Rugby Store (Donnybrook), Champion Sports (Grafton Street) and all Ticketmaster outlets nationwide. Tickets will also be on sale at the ground on the night.
