Sexton back on the bench for Leinster

Leo Cullen has named Johnny Sexton on the bench for Leinster’s Heineken Champions cup game with Montpellier on Sunday.

The side will be captained by James Ryan and it will be the first time that the team has played since the fixture against Bath in Aviva Stadium on 11 December.

Hugo Keenan will wear the number 15 jersey, with Jordan Larmour and Jimmy O'Brien on the wings. O'Brien made his European debut against Montpellier last season.


In the centre Ciarán Frawley and Garry Ringrose are selected, while Jamison Gibson-Park and Ross Byrne are the half-backs selected by Cullen.

In the pack, Andrew Porter, Rónan Kelleher and Tadhg Furlong start in the front row with Ross Molony and James Ryan an all-St. Michael's College second row. Caelan Doris, Josh van der Flier and Jack Conan complete Cullen's starting XV.
