O'Driscoll and Healy both expected to be fit to face Toulon in Heineken Cup
Coach Matt O'Connor has no worries over his star duo.

Leinster coach Matt O’Connor insists that both Brian O’Driscoll and Cian Healy will be fit for the crunch Heineken Cup clash against Toulon.

O’Driscoll had to be withdrawn after scoring the only try of the game in the Rabo Direct PRO12 win over Munster, while Healy didn’t play at all.

"[O'Driscoll] just got a bang on the neck," O'Connor said.

"He was over the ball and he got his neck twisted, but he'll be fine."

Healy, meanwhile, was close to selection but stayed inactive as a precaution.

"[Healy] was really close to playing this morning. I'd be very surprised if he doesn't take to the field next week."

The match at Stade Felix Mayol takes place next Sunday.
