Leavy Returns As Leinster Name Strong Team For Edinburgh Clash

Back in action.

Head coach Leo Cullen has named his Leinster Rugby team for tomorrow’s Guinness PRO14 Round Four clash with Scottish side Edinburgh at the RDS Arena in Dublin.

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.

Captain Johnny Sexton leads the team on the occasion of his 150th cap for the province, with Luke McGrath in the number nine jersey. Devin Toner comes into the second row to partner James Ryan.

On the replacements bench Dan Leavy is in line to make his first appearance of the season having returned from injury.
