Fergus McFadden is back in training with Leinster ahead of this Saturday's Guinness Pro14 match away to Glasgow Warriors.

The province have announced in an injury update today that 33-year-old international returned to training last week and will look to increase his workload throughout this week.

Centres Joe Tomane and Rory O'Loughlin are also set to train more this week as they recover from hamstring and shoulder complaints respectively.

Tomane will increase his workload this week after sustaining his minor hamstring complaint ahead of the European Champions Cup opener against Benetton, while O’Loughlin returns to on-field training this week after picking up a shoulder injury in that same match.

Tadhg Furlong came through Saturday’s 13-6 Heineken Champions Cup win over Lyon on his return from a back complaint with no issues and is also expected to train as normal over the coming days.

Meanwhile, hooker Seán Cronin remains unavailable for selection as he recovers from a neck injury picked up on international duty with Ireland. He too is expected to do more in training as the week progresses.

Leo Cullen's side sit top of their Champions Cup Pool 1 on nine points alongside Northampton Saints after their opening wins in the tournament.

The eastern province continue their Pro14  campaign this weekend, having kicked it off last month with an impressive 53-5 win over Ospreys in Conference A.

They followed that up with a 3-0 win in Italy against Zebre in a dour affair, before a 50-15 win over Dragons on November 1st.

Flanker Josh Van Der Flier was one of those that impressed in Saturday's win over Lyon, with Ronan Kelleher another that has people talking - with an international call-up potentially on the horizon.

This weekend's Pro14 tie at Scotstoun is a repeat of the final of that competition in May. The 18-15 win at Celtic Park secured Leinster back-to-back wins in the tournament.
