The Leinster Rugby team, as sponsored by Bank of Ireland, has been named by Leo Cullen ahead of tomorrow’s visit up the M1 to the Kingspan Stadium to take on Ulster Rugby in the BKT United Rugby Championship (KO: 7.35pm – live on RTÉ, BBC NI, Premier Sports, RTÉ Radio and URC TV).

Garry Ringrose again captains the side from outside centre, with Robbie Henshaw in 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 this week however, with Luke McGrath retained in the number nine jersey but he is joined by Ross Byrne.

To the pack and there is only one change for Cullen from last week, with the same front five 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, with 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.

James Ryan and Johnny Sexton are both in line to make their first appearance of the season should they be introduced.
