Jordan Larmour returns to the Leinster fold for this Saturday’s Pro 14 clash against the Scarlets at the RDS (3.15, Sky Sports).

He is joined in the back three by Adam Byrne and James Lowe. Rory O’Loughlin and Noel Reid start in midfield, while Ross Byrne and Luke McGrath resume their partnership at halfback.

In the forwards Jordi Murphy - Ulster-bound in the summer - makes his 100th Leinster appearance, while Sean Cronin returns from international duty to take the number two jersey.
