The Leinster squad to face the Scarlets in Friday night’s Magners League clash at the RDS (kick-off 7.45pm) has been named. Tickets for the game are on sale now from www.ticketmaster.ie.
Heineken Cup finalists Leinster will go into their final home match of the season with a strong panel which includes Brian O’Driscoll, Gordon D’Arcy and Luke Fitzgerald – the three try scorers in last weekend’s semi-final victory over Munster.
Rob Kearney, Fergus McFadden, Stephen Keogh and Trevor Hogan have been added to the extended squad, which is expected to be reduced on Thursday afternoon.
Grand Slam winner Kearney is back in contention after recovering from a bout of the mumps, while Wallaby flanker Rocky Elsom is being rested for Friday’s game after a busy few weeks in blue.
Close to 12,000 tickets have now been sold for the Magners League clash with the Scarlets.
Tickets are on sale here as well as from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide. Tickets are also on sale in the Leinster Rugby Store and Spar shop in Donnybrook.
