Figure image
Shane Jennings and Leo Cullen have been named in Leinster’s starting XV for the Heineken Cup Pool 6 match against Leicester Tigers on Saturday (kick-off 3.30pm).

The former Tigers duo will be playing at Welford Road for the first time since their return to Dublin last summer.

Jennings wears the No7 shirt as Stephen Keogh comes in at the blindside, with Keith Gleeson moving to the bench, while Cullen will make his 50th appearance in the Heineken Cup.

Ireland captain Brian O’Driscoll leads the side, with Gordon D’Arcy alongside him in midfield.

Scrum-half Guy Easterby makes his 64th and final appearance for the club after coming out of retirement to cover for injuries.

The bench includes South African prop Ollie le Roux, who returns from injury, as well as Cian Healy and Jonathan Sexton who were both named in Ireland’s squad for the Six Nations this week.

Match tickets are still on sale from the Tigers ticket office at Welford Road. Call 08701 28 34 30 or book online. Match tickets will also be available from the ticket office on the day of the match.
