Ireland flanker Sean O'Brien is reportedly on course to face Glasgow Warriors on Friday.

Ireland flanker Sean O'Brien has reportedly returned to training following five months on the sidelines with an injured hip.

The 25-year-old picked up the injury on international duty in June, but underwent keyhole surgery to repair the cartilage damage to his hip.

According to Sky Sports News, the Leinster flanker could return to action for Friday's RaboDirect PRO12 meeting with Glasgow Warriors, although no official confirmation has been made.

O'Brien has made 22 appearances for Ireland since 2009.
