    Team Announcement
    Johnny Sexton will captain the team as a number of players return from injury for the top of Conference A clash.

    Hugo Keenan is selected at full back with Jordan Larmour back after a shoulder injury to start on the right wing and Dave Kearney selected on the left.

    Robbie Henshaw starts in the inside centre jersey with Ross Byrne starting outside him in the number 13 jersey for the first time in his Leinster senior career.

    In the half-backs, Jamison Gibson-Park is joined by captain Johnny Sexton.

    Cian Healy starts at loosehead prop with Andrew Porter at tighthead, while Seán Cronin makes his first start of the season at hooker after recovering from a thumb injury.

    Former Australian international Scott Fardy is joined by James Ryan in the second row while, in the back row, fit-again Rhys Ruddock starts with Josh van der Flier at openside and Caelan Doris at number eight.

    Hey folks.

    Can you watch this on Premier Sports via Sky?


  • Registered Users Posts: 430 ✭✭ ElisaAtWar


    If there was one thing that came out of this game, it's a degree of equality. I wish both teams well, and I will support the underdog. And the only reason for that sentiment is to see a bit more equality in Irish rugby


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,737 ✭✭✭ jacothelad


    The Leinster pack will secure a comfortable win.

    Only in the UK AFAIK. Its Eir only in Ireland.

    Hopefully a good game, can’t see anything other than a Leinster win. Had Connacht lost last week, you could have made a case for Ulster catching Leinster a little cold, but effectively this is now in must win territory for Leinster. If Munster were to beat Leinster, and Ulster were to win remaining games, would it set up an Ulster Leinster decider in Belfast?? Would be a great game then.

    Did they lose the rights for live Leinster though?

    I think they only get live rights for some games.

    Generally Eir want to keep the big games exclusive to themselves, otherwise nobody would ever subscribe.
