Leinster team for Sunday

    Gary Ellla has named the team. Big news is Warner is back in. He has chosen to stick D'Arcy into no.13 and recall Brenndan Burke to the starting 15. Also Ben Gissing has been cleared of stamping so he retains his place in the second row. I can't wait to see what D'Arcy can do at no.13. He has been one of Leinsters best players this season. And Burke on the wing has been pretty consistant this year too. BOD will be missed but the it is a pretty attacking backline so should be interesting.

    Leinster Lions:

    15: Girvan Dempsey
    14: John McWeeney
    13: Gordon D'Arcy
    12: Shane Horgan
    11: Brendan Burke
    10: Christian Warner
    9: Brian O'Meara

    1: Reggie Corrigan (Captain)
    2: Shane Byrne
    3: Peter Coyle
    4: Malcolm O'Kelly
    5: Ben Gissing
    6: Eric Miller
    7: Keith Gleeson
    8: Victor Costello


    16: Enda Bohan
    17: Gavin Hickie
    18: Des Dillon
    19: Aidan McCullen
    20: Brian O'Riordan
    21: Matthew Leek
    22: David Quinlan

    Burke is looking real good, I know him since we hung around at the local bench, brings a tear to my eye.

    Thank god Warner is back (well... at least he's better than Leek ) . . Not sure about D'Arcy at 13 . . . would rather see him as an attacking full back !

    I thought Quinlan was doing a reasonable enough job at 13 so I'm surprised to see D'Arcy there
