Fergus McFadden has returned to full training and may be available for Leinster’s Guinness Pro14 game against Zebre in Stadio Zaffanella on Saturday, having sustained a severe hamstring injury that has kept him sidelined since late October.
Dan Leavy continues to rehab his calf injury at the province with no firm indication of when he will be available for selection. Garry Ringrose, who missed Ireland’s victory over Scotland at Murrayfield following a hamstring injury in the English match, will rehab at the province this week before returning to Ireland camp over the weekend.
Devin Toner had ankle surgery last week and the medical prognosis on his comeback is eight weeks, while Joe Tomane is edging closer to the pitch. His “training load” following surgery on a torn hamstring will be stepped up.
