O'Connor believes trio will make start of Six Nations

Leinster coach Matt O'Connor says the injury news regarding Jamie Heaslip, Eoin Reddan and Dave Kearney is positive.

The trio came off early against Wasps during their Champions Cup draw with Wasps on Saturday sparking fears they would be ruled out of Ireland's Six Nations opener with Italy in Rome on Saturday week.

O'Connor says they will undergo further investigation today and says while it might be tight they have a good chance of being available for Ireland.

Leinster will host Bath in the Champions Cup quarter-finals on the weekend of April 3-5.

Should they win they will meet Toulon or Wasps away in the semi-final.
