Breaking: Leinster Forced To Pull Lions Star From Squad For Scarlets Clash
Leo Cullen has this afternoon confirmed that Seán O’Brien is a late withdrawal from the match day 23 to face the Scarlets this evening.
Cullen confirmed that O’Brien is suffering from a tightness in his calf and a decision has been taken not to risk the injury further.
As a result Ross Byrne comes onto the bench in his place and there will be a numerical shuffle in the replacements as a result with Jamison Gibson-Park now wearing number 21 instead of O’Brien and Byrne wearing the number 22 jersey.
Otherwise the team is as announced yesterday afternoon for the Guinness PRO12 Semi-Final against 3rd placed Scarlets.
