Larmour Starts As Leinster Team Named For Champions Cup Clash With Glasgow

Larmour is in.

Leinster Rugby Head Coach Leo Cullen has announced the match day 23 to take on Glasgow Warriors in the Champions Cup on Sunday in the RDS Arena.

There’s a first European start for sensation Jordan Larmour at fullback, while James Lowe will also make his European bow on the wing, with Fergus McFadden on the other.

In the centre with Garry Ringrose ruled out through injury, captain Isa Nacewa comes into the number 12 jersey with Robbie Henshaw moving out one to the number 13 shirt.

Seán O’Brien saw a specialist this week for the tightness in his hip as it hadn’t responded to treatment as Leinster would have liked. As a result he had a small procedure and the target is to have O’Brien back available during the 6 Nations window.
