Sexton in line for Leinster return


Johnny Sexton has returned to training ahead of Sunday's Heineken Champions Cup semi-final against Toulouse.

Sexton has not played since Ireland's Guinness Six Nations defeat to Wales after picking up a quad strain that forced him to withdraw from the team to face Ulster in the quarter-final.

Ross Byrne was drafted into the starting XV in place of Sexton but the World Rugby Player of the Year is likely to return to the team for Sunday's game at the Aviva Stadium, providing his comes through training this week.

Robbie Henshaw and Devin Toner are available after coming through last weekend's Guinness PRO14 defeat to Glasgow without any issues, while Tadhg Furlong is expected to be fit despite limping off at the RDS.

Rory O'Loughlin and Will Connors are also in contention but Mick Kearney's season is over as a result of the injury he picked up in the win over Benetton earlier this month.
