Conor O'Brien added to Leinster's European panel


Conor O'Brien has been added to Leinster's Heineken Champions Cup squad ahead of Saturday's clash against Toulouse.

O'Brien has been in impressive form for the province this season and the defending champions have taken up the option of registering the 22-year-old centre as part of their panel for the European competition.

His inclusion comes at the expense of Joe Tomane, who is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Head coach Leo Cullen was full of praise for O'Brien following his man-of-the-match performance against Ulster on Saturday and hinted that he could feature against Toulouse.

Meanwhile, Ulster have added Robert Baloucoune to their squad ahead of their must-win game against Racing 92 at Kingspan Stadium. The younger winger takes the place of Henry Speight, who has returned to the Brumbies following his long spell with Ulster.
