Leinster Name Strikingly Strong Team After Last Week's Backlash

Leinster Name Strikingly Strong Team After Last Week's Backlash

Leo Cullen has named a strong team to face the Scarlets in tomorrow’s Guinness PRO14 game.

For the second time this week, Leinster will travel to Wales and Cullen has recalled several Irish stars for that fixture.

Leinster came from behind to win by a single point - 33-32 - in spite of starting a team featuring three regular Irish internationals: Rhys Ruddock, Luke McGrath and Dave Kearney. That they still won is a testament to the champions' awesome level of depth, but there were several critics who cited the selected team as evidence of an imbalanced system. 

Robbie Henshaw is set for his 25th appearance for the province, while Jordan Larmour is paired with Fergus McFadden and James Lowe in an explosive back three. In the pack, there is a front row of Irish internationals with Cian Healy, Seán Cronin and Tadhg Furlong.
