Leinster Team Named For Champions Cup Clash With Exeter

Another classic on the cards?

Head coach Leo Cullen has named his Leinster team for this weekend’s return Champions Cup pool clash with English Premiership side the Exeter Chiefs, at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Cullen has been forced into one personnel change and one positional change for the return fixture.

With Rhys Ruddock ruled out with a hamstring injury it means that the man that replaced him early in the second half last week, Josh van der Flier, starts in the Aviva.

With van der Flier coming in, it means a swap to the blind side for Seán O’Brien with van der Flier then taking the number seven jersey from the Tullow man.

Otherwise it’s as you were.
