Ringrose Returns As Leinster Team Named For Kings Clash

Ringrose is back.

Leinster Rugby Head Coach Leo Cullen has named his match day 23 to take on the Southern Kings in the RDS Arena tomorrow evening in Round 16 of the Guinness PRO14.

After his debut off the bench last week against the Scarlets, Skerries man Ciarán Frawley has been named to start at outhalf by Cullen for the first time.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

Elsewhere, Dave Kearney starts at full back for his 120th cap with Barry Daly on the right wing and last week’s Guinness Man of the Match James Lowe on the left wing. Isa Nacewa captains the side from the centre on his 180th appearance in blue with the returning Garry Ringrose outside him in the number 13 jersey.

In the front row Ed Byrne is selected at loosehead prop and is joined by twin brother Bryan at hooker.
