Out of contract.
Irish veterans Rob Kearney and Devin Toner look set to be without a club this summer with Leinster head coach Leo Cullen unable to guarantee them new deals as things stand.
Kearney, Toner and Australian centre Joe Tomane are all out of contract soon and Cullen is unsure if they will be at Leinster next season or not.
Fullback Kearney is expected to move on with the 34-year-old already stating he would like to continue playing providing he’s able to find himself a new club when rugby resumes.
Tomane has struggled since arriving from Montpellier in 2018, spending a considerable amount time on the sidelines with injury, and could also very well move on in the summer.
But Toner leaving would be a shock with the monstrous lock recently fighting his way back into the Irish set-up under Andy Farrell.
“There’s going to be a good chunk of players that still haven’t got themselves sorted with contracts for next season so to speak and we’ll just have to wait and see what that looks like,” Cullen told the Irish Daily Mirror.
“Are they going to join another club? Are they going to retire completely? What’s the financial situation etc, etc?
“There’s a huge amount of factors that we don’t know yet.”
