Paul O'Connell came through the full 80 against Connacht unscathed and found the experience an enjoyable one. "I feel great, I feel really good actually. It was incredibly important for me to get the full 80 and it was great to get through it. I will be fine by Harlequins, I know that myself, so there is no fear and it's just a matter of getting sharper now."
Luke O'Dea who factured a bone in his hand during the Munster A v Leinster A game currently has it in plaster and will know more tomorrow following further examination. Keith Earls (shoulder) and Simon Zebo (foot) who both picked up injuries during Ireland's 6 Nations campaign continue to be ruled out of action.
Good news for Dave O'Callaghan (knee) as he is expected to return to training this week.
