Head coach Michael Cheika insists his trio of injured stars won't be missed during Leinster's top of the table Mangers League clash with Ospreys.
Irish internationals Jonathan Sexton, Rob Kearney and Brian O’Driscoll have all been ruled out of the clash with the former duo also doubtful for Leinster’s Heineken Cup semi-final against Biarritz.
But Cheika is adamant Leinster have the strength in depth to make up for their absence, despite taking on an Osprey’s side that moved into second after defeating Ulster 38-27 last time out.
And with three games of the regular season remaining Cheika, who will become director of rugby at Stade Francais at the end of the season, is adamant the Magners League is the top priority.
"It’s a big match on Friday because if we sort out our home games for the rest of the season we should finish in the top two,” said Cheika.
"That's important. That's pretty much where our concentration is. The team, they were pretty sore after the weekend but they are ready to go now after a right good little session.
"The injuries are going to open the door for a few guys and we have got some good options to choose from. Shaun Berne has guided us through the Heineken Cup and he is a very experienced player.
"Fergus McFadden will come into the reckoning for a position and he has got a couple of opportunities over the next week or two to put his best foot forward for them.
"And Gordon D'Arcy and Shane Horgan have been included them in the squad because we think that they are more likely to play this weekend than not."
