Leinster's immense squad depth could be enhanced even further with Tadhg Furlong, James Ryan and Dan Leavy all battling to return in time for Friday night's Guinness Pro14 semi-final against Munster. 

Ireland lock Ryan had been expected to be out for up to three months after suffering a shoulder injury in training that required surgery at the start of this month.

However, he was involved in the extended squad for the weekend win over Ulster and will be further assessed this week before a final decision is made on his involvement for the Aviva Stadium showdown.

Leavy, who hasn't played since the March 2019 Heineken Champions Cup victory over Ulster, was also in the extended squad on Saturday following his recovery from a knee injury.

Leinster said they'll be keeping tabs on his condition in the run-up to the semi-final.

Furlong has been struggling with a back issue but the province haven't fully ruled him out either.

Meanwhile, Rhys Ruddock came through the Ulster clash with no fresh problems in relation to his quad.

Fergus McFadden has started running as he steps up his rehab from a calf injury but Vakh Abdaladze (back), Dave Kearney (hamstring), Conor O'Brien (hamstring) and Adam Byrne (hamstring) are all definitely out.
