Leinster have been boosted by the return of Johnny Sexton and Scott Fardy for their clash with Glasgow in the Champions Cup.

Out-half Sexton comes back in to captain the side for the trip to Scotstoun, after a dead leg ruled him out of last week's win over Montpellier.

Australian Fardy returns to the second row after he was forced to pull out of the Champions Cup opener at the RDS at the eleventh hour after the birth of his son.

They replace Ross Byrne and James Ryan respectively, who are both named among the replacements.

Sexton and Fardy represent just two of a number of changes to Leo Cullen's charges, as Cian Healy and Sean Cronin come into the front row alongside Tadgh Furlong.

Isa Nacewa hasn't recovered from the ankle injury that forced an early exit from last week's game, so his place in the centre is taken by Noel Reid who partners last week's man of the match Robbie Henshaw.

Fergus McFadden will play on the wing in place of Adam Byrne, who drops out of the squad entirely, and he's joined by Barry Daly and Joey Carberry in the back three.

The back-row remains unchanged, with Jack Conan at the back of the scrum and partnered by Rhys Ruddock and try-scorer Josh Van Der Flier.

The team in full is as follows:
