McFadden returns to training

Fergus McFadden could make his return for Leinster in Saturday's Guinness PRO14 clash against Zebre.

McFadden has been sidelined with a high-grade hamstring injury since October but he has returned to full training and will be assessed ahead of Saturday's game.

Dan Leavy, however, remains sidelined with a calf injury and he has been joined in the treatment room by Devin Toner, who is facing up to eight weeks on the sidelines after undergoing ankle surgery last week.

Elsewhere, Joe Tomane's workload will be increased as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury.

“They’re all making pretty good progress,” assistant coach Stuart Lancaster told Leinster Rugby TV.

“Joe Tomane’s getting closer. Certainly, in the next week or two, he should be training on the field with us which will obviously put him back into contention for selection.

“Dev, obviously unlucky with his injury – I actually can’t think of when Dev’s been injured before. To lose him, from an Ireland set up, is huge.

“The operation has been successful, as far as I understand, so he’ll begin a slow, progressive rehab. Hopefully, he’ll be fit towards the end of the season and contribute towards Leinster’s push at the end.”

Garry Ringrose has returned to Leinster to rehab with the province after missing Ireland's win over Scotland with a hamstring injury. He will rejoin the Ireland squad at the weekend.
