Johnny Sexton is set to be fit for Ireland’s opening Six Nations match against Wales in Cardiff on Sunday week.
The captain picked up a hamstring strain in Leinster’s win over Munster last weekend.
Speaking at the launch of the tournament today, the out half says he’ll be fine.
“It’s a minor hamstring issue but I’d hope to be back by the weekend, it’s lucky that we’ve got a little bit of prep with Wales (game) being Sunday week so whenever it’s right really” says Sexton.
“Its frustrating timing really but it is what it is, just got to look after it and make sure I come back and I’m ready to go”.
