Picking A Combined Leinster & Munster XV

This is sure to divide opinion.

Munster and Leinster are set to take each other on at the Aviva Stadium tomorrow afternoon, in what promises to be a classic affair between two Irish heavyweights.

Both teams have started the season well, surviving without their Lions and a number of internationals up until last weekend. But who will come out on top tomorrow?

Well we can’t answer that. But what we can do itsput together a combined XV in the build-up to get you fired up for the clash. In our selection process we’ve decided to use the two line-ups picked for tomorrow, ignoring the injured lads.

First up. Here’s the two teams selected for tomorrow.

Now here’s our combined team

Combined Munster & Leinster XV

1. Jack McGrath – Leinster
2. Niall Scannell – Munster
3. Tadhg Furlong – Leinster
4. Devin Toner – Leinster
5. Scott Fardy – Leinster
6. Peter O’Mahony – Munster
7. Josh van der Flier – Leinster
8. CJ Stander – Munster
9. Conor Murray – Munster
10. Johnny Sexton – Leinster
11. Keith Earls – Munster
12. Robbie Henshaw – Leinster
13. Chris Farrell – Munster
14. Andrew Conway – Munster
15. Joey Carbery – Leinster

So that’s eight Leinster players and seven Munster. Pretty close. Interestingly it’s Munster dominating in the backs, while Leinster dominate the pack.

Boy how times have changed. 😂
