The team shows four changes from the side that faced Munster last weekend.

Killian Lett returns from injury to take his place in the centre replacing Johnny Williams, who now moves to out-half in place of Eric Flynn.

Simon Deevey comes in at number 8 for David O’Connor, and Shane Rogers is on the replacements bench in place of Ross Doyle.

Following a narrow win over Connacht in their opening fixture in Newbridge and after their loss to Munster in Newcastle West last weekend, Leinster are third in the table on four points and face a mammoth task on Saturday against leaders Ulster if they are to secure this year’s championship.
