Corrigan fit for semi-final

Reggie Corrigan seems certain to be available for Leinster's Heineken Cup semi-final against Perpignan at Lansdowne Road on 27 April.

Corrigan missed Leinster's quarter-final win over Biarritz on Saturday because he had not recovered from a hand injury picked up during Ireland's Six Nations campaign.

However, the Leinster captain is expected to be given the all-clear later this week to resume full training.

Shane Horgan is also likely to resume training this week and should return to the Leinster line-up in the semi-final.

Munster, after their impressive away win over Leicester on Sunday, face another away trip in the semi-final with Toulouse having home advance on 26 April.

Irish international lock Paul O'Connell picked up a bang to the head in Sunday's win but his fitness for the semi-final is not thought to be in any doubt.

Munster have received an initial ticket allocation of 12,000 for the Toulouse game and they will be given another 3,000 if the demand is there.

Perpignan have been allocated 22,000 tickets for the Lansdowne Road semi-final but the French club are unlikely to need anything like that number.

Only around 100 Perpignan fans travelled to Wales for Friday's quarter-final against Llanelli.

Therefore over 30,000 tickets are likely to be available for Leinster supporters.
