Leinster have confirmed that Jack Conan is likely to miss the rest of the season.

The powerful flanker is facing at least another month out of action during an injury-plagued campaign after breaking a bone in his foot for the second time this season.

He suffered the latest injury in training last week after he was sidelined for 10 weeks when he broke a bone in his other foot last November.

In better news for Leinster, Luke Fitzgerald, Rob Kearney and Marty Moore are all close to a return to action with Fitzgerald hoping to a play a part in this weekend's Pro12 derby against Connacht.
