Leinster name team for Ulster derby

Leo Cullen has named the Leinster team to face Ulster in Kingspan Stadium on Friday.

Garry Ringrose again captains the side from outside centre, Robbie Henshaw wears the number 12 jersey beside him.

Elsewhere in the backs, it's the same back three for Cullen with Jimmy O'Brien, Jordan Larmour and Dave Kearney selected as a trio for the second weekend in succession.


It's a new half-back combination, with Luke McGrath retained at number nine but is partnered by Ross Byrne.

In the pack shows minimal changes from last week for Cullen. The same front five is selected for the game in Belfast against the team at the top of the BKT URC table.

Andrew Porter, Dan Sheehan and Michael Ala'alatoa form the front row. Ross Molony and Jason Jenkins behind them in the second row.


Ryan Baird and Josh van der Flier are again selected at blindside and openside flanker, with Jack Conan the final change to the XV, coming in for his first appearance of the new season.

On the bench, James Ryan and Johnny Sexton are in line to play their first games of the season.
