No concern: Brian O'Driscoll

Leinster boss Matt O'Connor expects Ireland duo Brian O'Driscoll and Cian Healy to be fit for the Heineken Cup crunch against Toulon.

Healy missed out on Saturday's win over Munster in the Aviva Stadium, although O'Connor admitted he had been close to selection.

O'Driscoll, who scored Leinster's only try in the 22-18 win, went off in the second half but the 35-year-old will be "fine" according to O'Connor.

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

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

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

The victory over second placed Munster has taken Leinster five points clear at the top of the Pro12.
