Sexton Captains As Host Of Internationals Return To Face Dragons

Leinster captain, Johnny Sexton will make his first start of the season against Dragons tomorrow in the RDS.

The home side have named a very strong team for the PRO14 clash and are boosted by the return of Josh van der Flier who injured his ACL in February during the Six Nations against France.

A number of internationals are also making their return to the matchday squad.

Rob Kearney comes in at full back which means that Jordan Larmour moves to the right wing from last week, while Dave Kearney comes onto the left wing.

In the centre Robbie Henshaw and Garry Ringrose are partnered for the first time this season with Ringrose making his first appearance.

In the half backs Jamison Gibson-Park starts again with Sexton outside him.

Kick-off in the RDS on Saturday is 5.15pm.
