Both Leinster and Munster have reported clean bills of health following their RaboDirect Pro12 clash at Aviva Stadium.

Leinster came out 22-18 on top in a bruising interprovincial derby encounter at Irish rugby HQ, but both squads have collected no major injuries ahead of their European Cup quarter-final clashes next weekend.

Leinster's Brian O'Driscoll left the field with a neck injury during the second half of the tie, however, the injury was minor and he is expected to be fully fit to face Toulon.

Cian Healy, Martin Moore, Jack McGrath and Dave Kearney were all rested for the match, but they are all expected to be fit for selection.

Munster's Peter O'Mahony withdrew from the  late on with a tight hamstring, but the move was a precautionary measure and he is expected to face Toulouse next weekend.

The southern province had no other major injury concerns to report and will assess the squad further tomorrow.
