Leinster are sweating on the fitness of seven Ireland internationals ahead of their Champions Cup Round of 16 clash with Leicester Tigers at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday.

None of them have yet been ruled out, but Leo Cullen listed them all as doubts in the injury bulletin published today.

Robbie Henshaw and Luke McGrath are following the concussion return to play protocols after suffering head injuries in the win over the Bulls.

Six Nations winners Hugo Keenan (hip), Garry Ringrose (shoulder), Andrew Porter (shoulder) and Ciarán Frawley (foot) are all doubts.

Jimmy O’Brien and All Black Charlie Ngatai are close to a return from neck and calf injuries, but this game might come too soon.

Scrum-half Cormac Foley has returned to full fitness after his shoulder injury, while James Ryan (arm), Tommy O’Brien (hamstring) and Alex Soroka (foot) are all still out.
