Jordan Larmour is to make his 100th Leinster appearance, in Cardiff

The Leinster Rugby team, proudly sponsored by Bank of Ireland, to take on Cardiff Rugby the BKT United Rugby Championship tomorrow evening in Cardiff Arms Park has been named by Head Coach Leo Cullen (KO: 7:35pm, live on RTÉ2 and Premier Sports 1).

After playing for Ireland in the Six Nations against Italy, Jordan Larmour returns to the team to make his 100th Leinster appearance.

Larmour made his debut in September 2017 against Dragons, scoring a try on his debut. To date, he has scored 39 tries for Leinster, and has already touched down six times this season.

There are two changes from the side that defeated Benetton with Larmour being joined in the backline by Harry Byrne, while the pack remains unchanged.

Larmour starts at full-back, with Liam Turner and Rob Russell named on the wing. Turner starts on the wing for the first time since October 2022, having already started three games this season in the centre.

Byrne is joined in the centre by Jamie Osborne. In the half-backs, Luke McGrath and Ross Byrne continue their partnership, having impressed against Benetton.

In the pack, Jack Boyle, Lee Barron and Thomas Clarkson are in the front row once more.

Ross Molony and Jason Jenkins are named in the second row, with Will Connors, captain Scott Penny and Max Deegan completing the pack.

After featuring in last week’s Friendly against Saracens, Michael Milne is in line to make his first competitive appearance of the season, from the bench.
