Garry Ringrose returns to the Leinster team to face Munster, who are able to include Peter O'Mahony in their starting 15.

The inaugural Rainbow Cup kicks off on Friday night before Leinster and Munster meet at the RDS on Saturday.

Ringrose will captain the Leinster side after recovering from an ankle injury.

Jordan Larmour is selected at full-back, with Dave Kearney on the right-wing and James Lowe on the left.

In the half-backs, Hugh O’Sullivan starts at scrumhalf with Harry Byrne at outhalf.

In the pack, Ed Byrne, Dan Sheehan and Andrew Porter form the front row, with Ross Molony and Ryan Baird named in the second row.

The back row sees Josh Murphy and Scott Penny on the flanks and the fit-again Caelan Doris at number eight.
