Joey Carbery at 10 as Leinster look to bounce back against Dragons

The Athy man is the only international involved against Australia who will feature at the RDS tomorrow.

FRESH FROM 40 minutes as an international fullback, Joey Carbery will wear number 10 for Leinster when the Dragons visit the RDS tomorrow (19.35, TG4).

The Athy man is joined in the starting line-up by fellow November Test debutants James Tracy, Dan Leavy as well as his half-back partner Luke McGrath.

Carbery is the only Ireland international involved against Australia to feature in the Leinster 23, so Andrew Porter, Jeremy Loughman and Richardt Strauss back up the front row of Peter Dooley, Michael Bent and James Tracy.
