The Leinster team to face the Scarlets in Saturday’s Magners League clash at the RDS (6.30pm) has been named.

Shane Jennings captains the side and is one of five Ireland internationals named in the pack for the visit of the Scarlets to the RDS. Jennings forms an exciting looking back-row alongside Kevin McLaughlin and Sean O’Brien. Devin Toner lines up at lock alongside Malcolm O’Kelly who will make his 177th Leinster appearance.

Bernard Jackman is named at hooker with Stan Wright and CJ van der Linde both named at prop.

Eoin Reddan partners Jonathan Sexton at half-back and Shane Horgan (175th cap) and full-back Girvan Dempsey (167th) are named in the back three alongside Bank of Ireland Leinster Player of the Month Isa Nacewa. Shaun Berne partners Fergus McFadden at centre.

Over 14,500 tickets have now been sold for Saturday’s Magners League game against the Scarlets. There will be the usual ‘Family Day’ activity on the day and musician Colm Lynch will be performing at half-time.

Tickets are on sale now on and from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide. Tickets can also be purchased in Donnybrook from Spar and the Leinster Rugby Store and tickets will be available outside the RDS from 3pm on Saturday.
