Dan Leavy and Andrew Porter have been passed fit for Leinster's opening United Rugby Championship match against the Vodacom Bulls on Saturday.

Flanker Leavy has been out of action since undergoing an operation in February, while prop Porter has recovered from a foot injury, which ruled him out the Lions tour of South Africa during the summer.

Centre Garry Ringrose has also recovered from a shoulder injury and is available for selection for the 5.15pm Aviva clash.

Conor O’Brien, Jamison Gibson-Park, Max Deegan and James Lowe all came through the friendly against Harlequins with no issues after their return from injury and are expected to train as normal this week.

Josh Murphy (calf) and Harry Byrne (foot) are ruled out with minor injuries.

Longer-term absentees Jordan Larmour (groin), Dave Kearney (ankle), Michael Milne (calf), Will Connors (knee), Thomas Clarkson (hamstring), Tommy O’Brien (hamstring) and Jack Dunne (ankle) remain unavailable.
