Leinster will travel to Wales for the second time in a week and a number of players come back in to the squad from the team that accounted for Cardiff Blues by a point last Friday.
Jordan Larmour comes into the team at fullback with Fergus McFadden and James Lowe completing the back three that will line out in Parc y Scarlets.
The centre pairing will see Robbie Henshaw and Rory O’Loughlin in the 12 and 13 jersey respectively. It will be Henshaw’s 25th appearance for Leinster.
In the halfbacks Jamison Gibson-Park gets his first start of the season having come off the bench last week, while Ross Byrne is again named at number 10 after his man of the match performance in Cardiff.
In the backrow Josh Murphy starts in the number six jersey with Rhys Ruddock again captaining the side from openside flanker. Finally Jack Conan starts at number eight to complete the pack on the occasion of his 75th cap.
