The Leinster ‘A’ team to face Carmarthen Quins in tomorrow’s British & Irish Cup Round 4 match has been announced.

Leinster ‘A’ suffered their first defeat in the B&I Cup since October 2012 when they fell to Quins in Round 3, the match finishing 26-24. An opportunity to make amends against the same opposition comes tomorrow afternoon in Donnybrook at 1pm.

Luke McGrath will captain the side from scrum-half, with Cathal Marsh completing the half-back pairing.

Mick McGrath, who has tries in the Guinness PRO12 against Cardiff Blues and Edinburgh to his name already this season, will start on the wing for Leinster. Sam Coghlan Murray, who scored the ‘A’ team’s opening try against Carmarthen last month, and Cian Kelleher complete the back three.

Tom Daly and Brendan Macken have been paired in midfield for tomorrow’s match. 

Aaron Dundon will be joined in the ‘A’ team’s front row by Lansdowne RFC’s Ian Prendiville and Clontarf RFC’s Royce Burke Flynn. Gavin Thornbury and Ben Marshall have been named in the second row, with a back row of Dan Leavy, Josh van der Flier and Peadar Timmins completing the front eight.
