Leinster head coach Cullen has made a number of changes from the team that played last weekend against Glasgow Warriors with captain Johnny Sexton back from injury having recovered from a quad injury.


Elsewhere in the backs Rob Kearney again starts at full back, Jordan Larmour is again on the right wing but James Lowe comes in on the left.

In the centre Robbie Henshaw is again selected but is joined this week by Garry Ringrose.

In the half backs it’s a new pair selected by Cullen this week, with the aforementioned Sexton, back from injury, partnered by Luke McGrath.

In the pack Cian Healy, Seán Cronin and Tadhg Furlong, who all came on at half time last week, start with Devin Toner and James Ryan behind them in the second row.

There are two changes in the back row with Rhys Ruddock selected at blindside with Seán O’Brien retaining his place at openside and finally Jack Conan comes in at number eight.


Toulouse meanwhile have picked France scrum half Antoine Dupont at fly-half, with Sébastien Bézy inside him. Romain Ntamack isn’t in the 23-man squad.

In the pack Toulouse have the likes of Scotland lock Richie Gray, along with former All Blacks Charlie Faumuina and Jerome Kaino.
