Sexton, Henshaw and Lowe all stat against Toulon

Johnny Sexton will captain Leinster in their Heineken Champions Cup last-16 game with Toulon in as James Lowe returns to the side.

Hugo Keenan continues at full back with Jordan Larmour again on the right win and Lowe coming in on the left for his 50th Leinster cap.

It's as you were in the centre with Robbie Henshaw partnering Rory O'Loughlin.


Luke McGrath is at scrumhalf having captained Leinster last week to PRO14 glory, with Johnny Sexton back to start as captain at ten.

In the pack, there is one change in the front row with Cian Healy and Rónan Kelleher joined by Tadhg Furlong.

In the second row, Devin Toner is joined by Ryan Baird who starts for the second time in Europe.


Finally, in the back row, it's the same trio that started against Munster with Rhys Ruddock at blindside, Josh van der Flier at openside and last week's Player of the Match Jack Conan at number eight.
