Leinster's bid to remain top of the Guinness Pro 12 table has been boosted by the news that Rob Kearney and Luke Fitzgerald are both back in contention for the visit of Edinburgh to the RDS this Friday.

Meanwhile, Sean O'Brien and Marty Moore are both set to step-up their return to action this week and the pair are both expected to feature for the province again before the end of the season.

After the Edinburgh game, Leinster face a trip to Ulster and the visit of Benetton Treviso as the pre-playoff section of the season winds down.

They currently top the table, with the same number of points as Connacht after 19 of the 22 league fixtures.

Ulster, who lie just outside the Top 4 play-off spots are eight points in arrears.
