BREAKING: Sexton Returns As Leinster Team Named For Glasgow Clash

Back in action.

Johnny Sexton has recovered in time to take his place in Leinster’s starting line-up for this weekend’s clash with Glasgow Warriors. The Lions playmaker will also captain the side with Isa Nacewa failing to recover from an ankle problem.

Cullen has made a number of changes to the starting XV that defeated Montpellier at the RDS this past weekend. Having featured off the bench against Montpellier, Fergus McFadden starts on the right wing.

Noel Reid comes in at 12, while Robbie Henshaw is selected in the number 13 jersey for the second game in a row. There are two changes in the front row with Cian Healy and Seán Cronin coming in from the start to join Tadhg Furlong.

Behind them Devin Toner is again selected and is joined by Scott Fardy who returns to the second row having missed out on the game last weekend at the eleventh hour due to the birth of his son, August.

On the bench there is a welcome return from ankle injury for Dan Leavy.
