And while head coach Lineen maintains he has been impressed by Jackson’s form so far this season, he is adamant having competition for the No.10 shirt is only going to improve hime as a fly-half.
He said: “Ruaridh has had three games in a row and I've been really impressed with how he's played.

Ireland full-back Rob Kearney will make his 100th appearance for Leinster against Edinburgh on Friday night in a side which also sees the return of eight-cap Johnny Sexton.

He said: “Edinburgh has a pretty tough pack and a solid set-piece.
“You have to have your discipline right, because in Chris Paterson, they have a very accurate kicker; his kicking out of hand is very good as well. His counter-attack is also very strong.
“Tim Visser was named on the Magners League Dream Team last year and he has scored some very impressive tries.”
