Leinster Resume League Campaign With Treviso Trip

Leinster Resume League Campaign With Treviso Trip

The Leinster squad trained in UCD today as the province build up to their RaboDirect PRO12 clash away to Benetton Treviso next Sunday (kick-off 3pm local time/2pm Irish time).

There will be an opportunity this week for the wider squad to build on the last round’s away victory over the Dragons, but the Leinster management will travel to Italy without those internationals who have been selected for Ireland’s clash against the All Blacks.

One player who the province will have to plan without is New Zealand centre Andrew Goodman who suffered a setback in his rehabilitation and will now undergo a procedure on his Achilles tendon which is set to sideline him for the next few months.

Team captain Leo Cullen has stepped up his rehabilitation in recent weeks, but a return to play date has yet to be determined for the experienced second row.

The Leinster medical team are hopeful that young back rower Jordi Murphy should return to action over the coming fortnight.

The players who are not on international duty this weekend will be available for selection and the management hope to be in a position to welcome back several of the squad who have been training with Ireland recently, which should be confirmed later in the week.

Meanwhile, ticket sales for Leinster’s Heineken Cup round 4 showdown with Northampton Saints at the Aviva Stadium next month continue to be snapped up. Sales have now passed the 30,000 mark – full ticket details are available here.
