Leinster’s Ruddock And Moore Available For Selection

After training in UCD yesterday afternoon, Leinster head coach Leo Cullen has reported a clean bill of health ahead of the visit of the Newport Gwent Dragons to the RDS on Saturday (kick-off 2.30pm).

The only players ruled out are long-term absentees Ed Byrne (knee) and Mick Kearney (ankle), but Ireland internationals Rhys Ruddock and Martin Moore have both trained this week as normal and are available for selection.

Ruddock, who captained Emerging Ireland during the summer, is returning from a twice operated on forearm fracture, while tighthead prop Moore is back in the mix following his recovery from foot surgery.
