Major Blow For Leinster As Six Starters Now Out For Toulouse Clash

The Leinster team are set to be without a host of key players for the visit of Toulouse in their crucial Champions Cup clash on Saturday.

It has been confirmed that Johnny Sexton, Rob Kearney, Devin Toner, Dan Leavy are all out while Robbie Henshaw will also be unable to feature against the Top 14 outfit. Henshaw recently returned from a hamstring injury to train with the province but has been deemed not fit for tomorrow's tie.

Winger James Lowe is also serving the second game of his two-week suspension.
