Brian O'Driscoll has been included in a 26-man Leinster squad for Friday night's Heineken Cup quarter-final clash with ASM Clermont Auvergne at the RDS.
The Irish skipper missed the Magners League win over Munster in Limerick last weekend - it was the first time in 15 years the Dubliners had won at Thomond Park - but is expected to be fully fit to continue his side's push for back-to-back Heineken Cup triumphs.
The only team to have achieved that in the 15 years of the tournament is Leicester Tigers in 2001 and 2002.
Leinster have installed extra seating for the game and a 20,000 sell-out is expected. Also returning to the squad is Irish wing Shane Horgan.
