The Leinster team to face Ulster in Ravenhill on Saturday (Kick-off 5.15) has been named and shows just one change from the side that drew 9-9 against Cardiff.

Brian O’Meara replaces Brian O’Riordan at scrum-half with the latter dropping to the bench while recent signing Ricky Nebbett will be given every chance to prove his fitness ahead of the Ulster clash.

Should Nebbett fail to recover from the foot injury sustained while walking barefoot last week, his place on the substitutes bench will again go to Arklow prop Anthony O’Donnell.

Leo Cullen again captains the side.
