JORDAN LARMOUR HAS earned the nod to start in the 15 shirt for Leinster’s Heineken Champions Cup clash away to Northampton tomorrow. (kick-off 1pm, Virgin Sport and Channel 4).

Veteran fullback Rob Kearney is named among the replacements, while his brother Dave starts on the wing as one of the five changes made to the side that ground out a win away to Lyon a fortnight ago.

Andrew Porter and number 8 Caelan Doris are among the changes, with Tadhg Furlong, Scott Fardy, Max Deegan and Luke McGrath held in reserve.

Jamison Gibson-Park partners captain Jonathan Sexton at half-back while Devin Toner is in the second row next to James Ryan.
