Munster and Leinster have named their teams for this weekend's PRO14 fixtures. 

Dave Kearney returns for defending champions Leinster for their clash with Edinburgh at the R-D-S on Friday evening.

He comes into the side on the right-wing, as one of three changes from last weekend's rout of the Ospreys.

Kearney wasn't involved last week but was the Guinness Man of the Match in their Round 1 win against Benetton Rugby

Leo Cullen has also brought Max Deegan and Scott Penny into his back-row.

Joe Tomane and Rory O'Loughlin continue in the centre and similarly, it's as you were at half-back with Jamison Gibson-Park and Ross Byrne starting for the third game in a row.

It's the same front five from last week with Peter Dooley, Rónan Kelleher and Michael Bent in the front row, with Devin Toner and captain Scott Fardy behind them.
