Michael Cheika may be unable to call on the services of Stephen Keogh for the Heineken Cup final after the Leinster back-row forward injured his shoulder while on Magners League duty.
The 27-year-old went off clutching his arm during Saturday's match against the Newport-Gwent Dragons and it is feared he has damaged the nerves in his shoulder.
"We think Stephen has suffered nerve damage to his shoulder, but we'll know more on Monday," Leinster head coach, Michael Cheika, admitted.
"He was definitely in contention for the final. He's done well over recent weeks - he's strong and physical and we need that against a team like Leicester. But we'll just have to wait and see how things go."
Keogh is no stranger to heartache in Europe's premier club rugby competition having lost a semi-final while in the red of Munster and a quarter-final with Leinster.
