Leinster make three changes for Glasgow clash

Dave Kearney returns

Leinster head coach Leo Cullen has made three changes to his team to face Glasgow Warriors in the Guinness PRO12 at Scotstoun tomorrow.

Last season's runners-up began their campaign with a lacklustre 20-8 victory over Italian side Benetton Treviso at the RDS last week, but Cullen knows that they will face a much sterner examination from the Scottish side who destroyed reigning champions Connacht at The Sportsground last weekend.

There is a welcome return for Dave Kearney on the left wing following the shoulder injury that kept him out of Ireland's tour to South Africa during the summer. His brother Rob continues at full back, with Fergus McFadden switching wings to start on the right.

There are no ther changes in the backs, with Luke McGrath set to captain the side from scrumhalf once . Last week's Guinness Man of the Match Joey Carbery will make his first start away from home at outside-half.

After scoring Leinster's third try off the bench last week, James Tracy is promoted to start at hooker between props Cian Healy and Michael Bent, with last week's secnd row of Ross Molony and Mike McCarthy retianing their slots.

Jordi Murphy starts his first game of the season from number eight alongside Dan Leavy and Josh van der Flier.

Mick Kearney, Peter Dooley and Tadhg Furlong are named among the replacements.
