Leinster team to face Ulster

The Leinster team to face Ulster in the Magners League game in the RDS on St. Stephens’ Day (KO: 3pm) has been named.


League leaders Leinster include Luke Fitzgerald for the game that looks set to be played in front of another sell-out crowd.

Fitzgerald replaces the injured Shane Horgan on the right wing while the remainder of the back line will be finalised closer to kick off.

Girvan Dempsey continues at full-back with Rob Kearney on the left wing.

In the pack, the final selection in the back-row will also be confirmed closer to kick off, but the front row and second rows have a familiar look to them with Leo Cullen continuing his partnership with Malcolm O’Kelly and Ollie le Roux joining Bernard Jackman and Stan Wright in the front row.

Jamie Heaslip lines up at number eight.
