INJURY UPDATE: Head coach Leo Cullen confirmed Garry Ringrose is in a race to full fitness for Leinster’s Champions Cup Final against Toulouse at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday.

The centre Ringrose has not started a game since the Champions Cup pool win over Leicester Tigers in January when he injured his shoulder.

He came off the bench in Ireland’s Six Nations win over Scotland, but hasn’t been able to shake off the knock.

The province revealed that the 29-year-old  “will continue to be assessed this week for a shoulder injury before a final decision is made on his involvement against Toulouse.”

In terms of fresh injury, Charlie Ngatai and Tommy O’Brien picked up respective injuries during the United Rugby Champions Round 17 match against Ulster.

Ngatai sustained a shoulder injury and O’Brien picked a hamstring injury during the 21-23 defeat to Ulster.

Both will be assessed this week, but there are certainly major doubts.

Cullen confirmed that the province’s trio James Ryan, Hugo Keenan and Will Connors will be in the selection mix for Saturday’s showdown as the province hunts their fifth Euro title.

The trio came through their returns against Ulster unscathed and are available.
