Heaslip Leads Leinster Against Glasgow

The Leinster team to face the Glasgow Warriors in Friday night’s Magners League clash at the RDS (kick-off 7.05pm) has been named.

Number 8 Jamie Heaslip leads a Leinster team which shows ten changes to the side that defeated Toulouse in the Heineken Cup semi-finals last weekend.

Heaslip links up in the back row with new inclusions Dominic Ryan and Shane Jennings, with Kevin McLaughlin switching to second row alongside Devin Toner.
