Ireland centre Gordon D'Arcy has been ruled out of Leinster's Amlin Challenge Cup final against Stade Francais.

D'Arcy will sit out the encounter at the RDS on Friday after suffering a recurrence of the calf injury that has limited his involvement in recent weeks.

The news is better for D'Arcy's centre partner Brian O'Driscoll, though, with the British and Irish Lions centre now set to play.

O'Driscoll was forced to miss the first get-together of the Lions squad on Monday to remain behind at Leinster for treatment on a back spasm.

Chance

However Leinster say O'Driscoll now has "a good chance" of being involved in the club's hunt for a fourth European trophy in five seasons.

Fellow Lion Sean O'Brien is also likely to take his place in the Leinster line-up after recovering from the calf injury that forced him to miss the RaboDirect PRO12 semi-final victory over Glasgow Warriors.

Leo Cullen (eye), Kevin McLaughlin (eye), Fergus McFadden (knee) and Richardt Strauss (knee) all picked up knocks in that win but they are expected to play.

Dave Kearney is pushing hard for inclusion as well after spending five weeks out on the sidelines.
