Johnny Sexton and Peter O'Mahony have emerged as injury concerns ahead of Leinster and Munster’s Heineken Champions Cup games next weekend.

Sexton was removed for a head injury assessment minutes after coming on as a second-half replacement in Leinster’s Guinness Pro14 final win over Munster at the RDS.

The four-time winners face Toulon at the same venue on Friday night, which means that the Ireland captain has just a six-day turnaround.

"He got a whack on the nose there," Leinster coach Leo Cullen told reporters after the game.

"He’ll go through his HIA inside. He’ll still follow the graduated return to play [protocols] so we’ll see how he comes through that." 

Sexton missed Ireland’s Six Nations match against France last month after failing to recover from a head injury suffered against Wales the week before.

Meanwhile, Munster may have to face Toulouse in Thomond Park on Saturday without captain O’Mahony after his suffered a leg injury at the start of the second half.

"He’s struggling a bit, he’s got a deep cut to his leg," said Munster head coach Johann van Graan of the back rower. 

"We will know a bit more later but it didn’t look good."
