Ireland winger Shane Horgan has been included in the Leinster squad for Saturday's Magners League clash with Cardiff.
Horgan completed his rehabilitation from a rib injury in Ireland A's defeat by England Saxons on February 1 but is still short of game time.
The 29-year-old was named on the bench for Saturday's 26-21 RBS 6 Nations loss to France but failed to make an appearance.
A disappointing display from Geordan Murphy, whose wing yielded three tries to the marauding Vincent Clerc, could see the Leicester back axed.
Horgan would be the natural choice to step in - provided coach Eddie O'Sullivan overlooks Tommy Bowe and Luke Fitzgerald once again - with Leinster's match against the Blues offering an invaluable run-out in preparation.
Fitzgerald also features in a 24-man Leinster party that includes extended Ireland squad members Leo Cullen, Keith Gleeson, Shane Jennings and Trevor Hogan.
