Marco Wentzel captains the side from the second row where he packs down alongside England international Tom Palmer with Joe Launchbury shifting out to flanker.

Ashley Johnson starts at number 8 this week, and Nick Robinson moves into the fly half shirt.

Young said: “There’s been a great buzz around the Club this week and everyone’s looking forward to testing ourselves against one of the best sides in European rugby. Leinster have been incredibly consistent over the last few years and this is a big challenge for our developing side but one everyone us up for.”
