150th Cap for Captain Sexton
September 21, 2018 / Marcus Ó Buachalla
The Leinster Rugby team, as sponsored by Bank of Ireland, has been named by Head Coach Leo Cullen ahead of tomorrow’s Guinness PRO14 clash at the RDS Arena (Kick Off: 7.35pm – live on eir Sport, with tickets still available at the following LINK).
Cullen has made one positional change from last week as well as bringing in a number of fresh faces to his match day 23.
Jordan Larmour wins his 25th cap for Leinster and moves from the right wing to full back, with Fergus McFadden coming in at 14 and James Lowe also coming in on the left wing.
It’s as you were in the centre with Robbie Henshaw and Garry Ringrose again selected as 12 and 13.
Captain Johnny Sexton leads the team on the occasion of his 150th cap for the province, with Luke McGrath in the number nine jersey.
In the pack Cian Healy again starts at loose head prop with James Tracy and Michael Bent coming in to complete the front row.
Devin Toner comes into the second row to partner James Ryan.
In the back row like Larmour, Max Deegan will also win his 25th cap tomorrow in the RDS and he is the only change there with Josh van der Flier and Jack Conan again in the seven and eight jerseys.
On the replacements bench Dan Leavy is in line to make his first appearance of the season having returned from injury.
