There are two debutants in centre Kyle Tonetti and out-half Ian McKinley who are the latest players to be promoted from the Leinster Academy. Tonetti partners Fergus McFadden, who is in line to make his seventh appearance of the season.
In the pack Devin Toner partners Trevor Hogan, while Kevin McLaughlin forms a strong back-row alongside Sean O'Brien and Stephen Keogh who captains the side.
