Craig Gilroy has been given the all-clear to play for Ulster in their Heineken Cup pool decider away to Leicester on Saturday.

The 22-year-old broke his nose following a collision with his team-mate Andrew Trimble against Montpellier last weekend.

There were fears that he had also suffered concussion but medics have cleared him to play at Welford Road in the 6pm kick-off.

However, prop Declan Fitzpatrick has been ruled out of action for two weeks after receiving a blow to the head.

The two sides have already qualified for the last eight but a win for Ulster would see them secure a quarter-final tie at Ravenhill.
