Leinster squad latest: Roux set for spell on sidelines as trio near return

This weekend’s game is expected to come too soon for Luke Fitzgerald, Eoin O’Malley and Dominic Ryan.

Quinn Roux was injured against Glasgow last Friday.

THERE WAS SOME bad news for Leinster on the injury front this weekend, as it was announced that second row Quinn Roux dislocated his shoulder during Friday’s 6-0 win over Glasgow, with the player now expected to be out for the foreseeable future.

However, there was positive news elsewhere, as Aaron Dundon, Isa Nacewa and Sean O’Brien all had successful comebacks, and are in contention to play again in the side’s upcoming fixture against Zebre this Saturday.

Yet while Luke Fitzgerald, Eoin O’Malley and Dominic Ryan are all nearing a return to full fitness, Saturday’s game is expected to come too soon for the trio.

The side will also be boosted by the return of several Ireland internationals, in addition to Heinke van der Merwe, who featured in South Africa’s win over England at the weekend.

Tickets for the game, which kicks off at 6pm, can be found here.
