PRO14 Final Lineups: Glasgow Warriors v Leinster

PRO14 Final Lineups: Glasgow Warriors v Leinster

Jonathan Sexton has returned to the Leinster starting line up to lead the side against Glasgow Warriors in the PRO14 Final at Celtic Park on Saturday.

Leo Cullen has made further changes with Rob Kearney coming in at fullback, in what could be his final game in a Leinster jersey, with Jordan Larmour moving to the right wing and James Lowe continuing on the left.

Robbie Henshaw and Garry Ringrose are again in the centre with Luke McGrath and captain Johnny Sexton the half backs. In the pack, the front row is unchanged with Cian Healy, Seán Cronin and Tadhg Furlong starting while Scott Fardy and James Ryan pack down in the second row with Devin Toner ruled out through injury. 

In the back row, vice-captain Rhys Ruddock starts at blindside flanker with Josh van der Flier on the openside and Jack Conan at No. 8.

Meanwhile, Dave Rennie has named an unchanged starting line up to face the defending champions.

The inclusion of Siua Halanukonuka on the bench the only change to the matchday 23. Stuart Hogg will play his last game for the club, starting in a back-three with DTH van der Merwe who has scored in his two previous appearances in PRO14 finals and Tommy Seymour who scored a brace of tries against Ulster seven days ago.

Sam Johnson and Kyle Steyn start outside of Ali Price and Adam Hastings, Steyn and Price also both crossed the whitewash last Friday. It’s a full Scotland international front-row, Jamie Bhatti and Zander Fagerson starting either side of Fraser Brown.

Scott Cummings and Jonny Gray pack down together again in the second-row, while in the back-row Rob Harley and Matt Fagerson start alongside captain Callum Gibbins.


Pete Horne’s inclusion on the bench makes it eight players in the squad who featured in Glasgow’s successful 2015 Final in Belfast.
