Leinster have received a blow ahead of their RaboDirect PRO12 final with the news that Isaac Boss has been forced to sit out the match.

Boss was a late withdrawal ahead of Leinster's Heineken Cup final against Ulster due to a thigh injury. Academy graduated John Cooney took his spot on the bench and made an appearance late on. Cooney now looks set to be included in the matchday squad for the clash with the Ospreys due to Boss' absence.

But in better news for Leinster, they seem to have no new injury worries ahead of the final. Brian O'Driscoll underwent keyhole surgery a fortnight ago but played nearly a full 80 minutes against Ulster and should be fit, with Cian Healy and Rob Kearney also set to play some part after recovering from their respective knocks.

Leinster will also be without Rhys Ruddock, Luke Fitzgerald and Eoin O'Malley due to long-term injury.
