Leinster are likely to miss the services of Sean Cronin and Rhys Ruddock for the Heineken Champions Cup final clash against Saracens next month following injuries.

Cronin sustained a calf injury during the conclusion of the first half in the semi-final of the Champions Cup against Toulouse and will undergo further assessment to analyse the extent of the damage.

Leinster's convincing win over four times Champions Cup winners Toulouse 30-12 sees them into the final at St. James' Park, odds for this final match-up can be viewed at the Preakness Stakes 2019.

Meanwhile, Ruddock was a late withdrawal from the game against Toulouse last weekend because of discomfort following the head injury that he sustained during the quarter-final against Ulster. He will be observed by the medical staff of the club this week but is certain to miss the upcoming Pro14 clash against Ulster coming weekend.

Adam Byrne is ruled out for the remainder of the ongoing season following a quad injury that he suffered during the game against Glasgow Warriors but Ross Molony is progressing well from a back injury.

There will be some relief for Leo Cullen though with Rory O'Loughlin and Jonathan Sexton set to resume normal training after a successful outing against Toulouse at Aviva Stadium.
