Leinster Team News: Henshaw Returns, O'Brien On The Bench

: 01/18/2019 - 12:23

The Leinster Rugby team has been announced to face Wasps on Sunday in Round 6 of the Heineken Champions Cup.

Head Coach Leo Cullen keeps faith with the same back three that scored two tries between them in the win over Toulouse last weekend,  with Jordan Larmour at full back and Adam Byrne and Dave Kearney on the wings.

Robbie Henshaw returns from a hamstring injury to take his place in the centre alongside Garry Ringrose. It’s the Westmeath man’s first game since late October for Leinster.

In the pack Jack McGrath comes into the front row alongside Seán Cronin and Tadhg Furlong and there is a change in the second row too with Devin Toner taking his place alongside James Ryan having recovered from an ankle injury.

On the bench Seán O’Brien is also returning from injury and is in line for his first Leinster game since October.

Also on the bench Leinster Academy scrumhalf Hugh O’Sullivan is in line to make his European debut. The Meath man is in his second year in the Academy and only turns 21 next month.
