LEINSTER HEAD COACH Leo Cullen has made three changes to his starting line-up for tomorrow’s visit of the Scarlets to the RDS (19.35, TG4).

Luke McGrath starts at scrum-half alongside Ross Byrne, whose presence ensures international squad member Joey Carbery is once again at fullback.

The two other changes come to the pack as Hayden Triggs this week starts alongside Ross Molony in the second row. Dan Leavy will wear the number seven jersey in place of Peadar Timmins who had to depart the win over Dragons early after a HIA.

Hooker Richardt Strauss captains the side on his 141st appearance.

Scarlets head coach Wayne Pivac meanwhile, has named a team unchanged from the 21 – 30 victory over Munster last weekend, including former Clongowes Wood schoolboy Tadhg Beirne in the second row.
