12 Jan 2018

Leinster Head Coach Leo Cullen has named his match day 23 to take on Glasgow Warriors in the Champions Cup on Sunday at the RDS.

Jordan Larmour is set to make his first Champions Cup start, while there is also a European debut for James Lowe. 

On the bench there is a potential Champions Cup debut for hooker Bryan Byrne, while James Ryan has recovered from injury to take his place on the bench.

In other injury news, Seán O’Brien saw a specialist this week for the tightness in his hip as it hadn’t responded to treatment as well as hoped.

Meanwhile, Adam Byrne has gone through a period of rehab for a knee injury since the Guinness Series. His treatment has also not gone as the management team would have hoped.
