Ulster centre Stuart Olding is optimistic that he will be available to face Glasgow in the Pro12 on Friday after passing initial concussion tests following his heavy collision in last week's game against the Dragons.
Olding, who only returned to action earlier this month after 10 months out, was briefly knocked out in the incident with Dragons full-back Carl Meyer but if successfully undergoes Thursday's final contact training concussion protocol, he will be in line to feature against the Warriors at Kingspan Stadium.
Speaking in BBC Sport Northern Ireland's latest Ulster Rugby Extra, Irish international Olding told of his admiration for Paul O'Connell following the Munster and Ireland legend's enforced retirement from rugby earlier this game.
The programme also looks back at Ulster and Ireland's games last weekend and previews this weekend's action.
